Preparedness

“Be prepared.” That’s part of the scout motto. And as much as I love my son, he is still a teenager, who procrastinates on everything.

 

Today was Scout Sunday at church. Patrick was to wear his entire uniform and acolyte. It wasn’t until last night when he started working on moving patches over from his old shirt to his new shirt and sewing his merit badges onto his sash…

 

Needless to say, I did most of the work.

 

We got it done, and he looked great for his role in church. And yet again, it just highlights the realization that Patrick has really taken to scouting and has thrived in it.

 

I’m very proud of him.

 

And I’m done with sewing for a bit.

 

See you tomorrow.
