Court of Honor 

beautiful Golden Eagle, the boys thought the girl was cute too :)

we held the program in our old ward (neighborhood), since he earned it there

So proud of all four of these boys!  Josh completed his Eagle last summer, but waited for his buddies to have the Court of Honor together.  Great Job Boys!

He chose a favorite scout leader, Spencer (right), to honor as his mentor

Josh organized his project improving the trail systems in our community, working on a mountain bike trail nearby.  They had to hike a mile or so with their tools on a hot July day to get to where they needed to work.  They worked hard and improved a good portion of the trail.  So nice seeing bikers come by and thank them for their hard work.  Even the girls put forth effort (bottom right), we mainly made sure they had water and were safe, and provided pizza afterwards :)  Thankful for all who came out to help!

So thankful for the great men and leaders in Josh’s life.  They were always there for him, encouraging him, teaching him and supporting him; planning hikes, campouts, certifications, & service projects.  They always tell me what a great kid Josh is and how much they enjoyed having him in their troop, he is a good leader and great friend to all.  And so nice of Josh’s new bishop (center picture) and new scout group to come to his Court of Honor, supportive friends.

Josh talking about becoming an Eagle and what it means to him, thanking his parents & leaders.  His old bishop in the background, Josh enjoyed being his assistant before we moved!

Texas Roadhouse after to celebrate, we gave him a nice Invicta watch to remember this special day.

Josh- great job for taking charge and for the service you provided in our community.  It was time consuming and difficult at times, but you put a lot into it and worked hard to achieve your goals and help others.  We couldn’t be more proud!  You are very skilled with great goals in life that we know you can achieve!  But mostly, thanks for being such a great kid and a joy to raise!
