on an eagle scout...

Yesterday I got to share a wonderful day with family as we witnessed Zach, Bobby's cousin receive the highest honor in Scouting-- The Eagle. I'm not going to lie when I say that I was totally ignorant to the significance of this event. I really hadn't a clue as to what it was all about and yesterday not only did I get to watch Zach become an Eagle but also I was educated on how much time and effort was put into achieving it. It seriously is so awesome. This is something that I truly want Sebastian to have, if not Boy Scouts then something that grabs his passion and lets him grow. For me growing up this was karate. I strived to become better and in the process had great mentors. And as I grew older I made it a duty to help the wee ones in their training and learning. 
Even though Zach isn't my kid as I sat there clicking the camera I couldn't help but swell with pride for Zach! It was a great gathering of people that support and love Zach and he also had really cool guests speak too! Here are some pictures of the day. (I wish I could of taken more but Sebastian was giving me a hard time)...
Days like yesterday touch my heart in a way that is hard to describe. All I know is that I am blessed to have all these wonderful people in my life and thankful for yesterday. Congrats Zach! Fly Eagle Fly :)


  1. Great Pictures!
