Getting closer

My ds has been working on completing his Eagle for the last 1 1/2yrs. The project was finally started and completed last April. Yahoo!! And then, because he had been typing the project info out the entire time, he didn't have to go back and type it out. Then he just had 2 last merit badges with 1 thing on each one that needed to be done. The first one was a family merit badge and we did that 2 Mon ago. Then this last Sat as the kids and I were headed out the door(as mentioned in my weekend catch up post) our Alderman rang our doorbell. Ds R had to do one of the items in the citizenship in the community. He was supposed to contact someone who works for the city and talk to them about things young people can do to help the community. He had written the alderman like almost 2 months ago and never heard back. This poor guy was so sorry about it he was now willing to listen to anything we had to say. He stayed for 45 min! Great talking to him.

Now we just need to have ds R get the report ready to send in and then wait. We're almost there. Can just about taste it. lol Keep in your thoughts and prayers that he will get this done and finally get his eagle. It will be sooo nice to have it done and out of the way.

Thanks! Yeah, he's to the point where he's really getting tired of it. And to think that almost 2yrs ago he was full of excitement and couldn't wait to get started. But we do see the finish line coming. Yeah!!
