Peter's a Bear!
Peter completed 12 chapters in his Bear handbook and has been awarded his Bear badge of rank! He is very excited, not only to have earned his rank, but to have been first in his den. (I don't think anyone else knew it was a race!)
He asked Grandma Billie and Grandpa Cliff (the locals) to join the fun at the pack meeting tonight.
Grandpa Cliff even earned a very prestigious award tonight... the neon yellow leader cape, which has been passed from leader to leader for the past 7 or so years. He's being thanked for welcoming the Webelos den to his shop to work on their Craftsman woodworking requirements.
Pack meetings wear me out! But it's a wonderful family event, with so much energy & excitement. I think perhaps earplugs would help...
