It seemed like it would never happen, but Jared received his rank of Eagle. After turning in his project write-up he was told it would be up to four months until he received his board of review but fortunately he was contacted much earlier. They said that as long as he had his paperwork turned in before he was 18 he was good to go. We were hoping to have his review completed before he was 18. We made it with a month to spare. Bonnie, Jared, Jared's Young Men's President and I drove down to a church in Chula Vista where we met the people who would be on his board. They took him into a little office while Bonnie and I stayed out in the foyer. As soon as they closed the door we sat right next to the door. If we listened closely, we could here everything that was said. They asked him questions for about 30 minutes. Jared was nervous by he gave really awesome responses. We were blown away by how much our son has changed and grown. The board was very impressed with Jared and told us what a pleasure it was to interview our son. Jared's distinction as the newest Eagle Scout would be short-lived because there was another review right after his. Afterwards, we took Jared's leader to dinner at the Barbeque Pit. It was a wonderful evening and a great relief. Now we have to plan the Court of Honor!
One Happy Camper!! ( DONE )
