Monday Memory: Boy Scout

July 2, 2007

It seems only appropriate this week that my Monday Memory should be about Jesse and Boy Scouts. The photo above was taken at Jesse's crossing-over ceremony (from Cub Scout to Boy Scout), a little over 4 years ago. It's not the clearest photo, but I was struck especially by this one because of how small he looks. Now he is as tall as the two boys (both Eagle Scouts now) who are escorting him and a few inches taller than me.

Yesterday he left for a week at Camp Buck Toms. This is his fourth year at camp but the first that Randy has not been able to attend with him. I know Jesse will have a great time. I know he knows the schedule of things and what to expect. But still. It doesn't seem that long ago that Jesse was one of the brand-new Scouts. What amazed Randy when he dropped Jesse off at camp yesterday is that now he is one of the oldest ones, with just Life and Eagle ranks yet to go. I wonder how much he'll tower over me at his Eagle ceremony...
