Since Brandon won't be here in June for his birthday we decided to celebrate his birthday on Monday while he is here. Lisa made a ton of pizza's and we all ate way more than we should have.
Tuesday morning I kissed them all goodbye and went to work, they headed down the highway a few hours later. Tuesday evening was Alex's Eagle Court of honor. We piggy backed on the court of honor for a few of his friends in 2nd ward. Boy do they go all out. It was a pretty fancy affair. It was my job to do the program and it was an eight page document. For your edification I've copied the part about Alex here.
It was a rewarding experience to be able to build his own shelter and spend the night in the wilderness.
Alex’s Eagle project was to make visual aids for the Primary Chorister to use. When a primary chorister is called she is often forced to acquire her own visual aids and it can take significant time and expense to assemble an adequate number of aids. Alex organized a team of volunteers to make over a hundred visual aids and a sturdy wooden box to store them in. Alex loves sports and in addition to playing Football, Basketball and Volleyball in high school he has refereed RPB basketball for several years. This year Alex coached a team of fifth grade boys and enjoyed watching their skills improve throughout the season. Alex will graduate with the class of 2009 from Westview High School in June and will be attending a year of School at the University of Utah before he goes on a mission for his church. Alex is the third of three boys in his family to join the ranks of Eagle Scout.
