Seven merit badges, two rank advancements, and a partridge in a pear tree.

I couldn’t help feeling wickedly proud of Gavin for having the longest list of achievements of all the boys in the Stake. What people didn’t realize is that he missed the last Court of Honor because he was running a Cross Country race that day. Gavin’s leaders didn’t specify so it was our little secret. I kind of like that people think my kid can blow their kid out of the water with Scout achievements!
