Connor just returned from his last ever Boy Scout trip last evening. Because he'll turn eighteen next month, he'll age out of enrollment for the program. While it's bittersweet, I'm very glad for his opportunity to participate in many adventures and volunteer efforts. It's been a rewarding experience.
This last week, Connor and his troop camped out at the Buffalo Trails Scout Resort in Midland, Texas. It's about twelve hours away from home. While there, he earned Merit Badges for Repelling, Archery, Mile Swim and Basketry. He also performed a service project with other Scouts and welded an iron enclosure for their recyclable paper products. Here are some photos from the week. Enjoy!!
