Thomas' first cub scout badge!!

Thomas had earned his Bobcat Badge back in December, but the Pack meeting for January was the Pinewood Derby, so he had to wait until the February Pack meeting to get his badge. February was the Blue and Gold Banquet so it was pretty special that he got his badge then. What they have you do is the father turns the boy upside down and then the mother pins the badge on right side up, so that when the boy is turned back over the badge will be upside down. (I hope that makes sense to you!) And then after the boy has done a "good turn" he is allowed to turn it over and sew it on the right way. It was a pretty fun experience. Thomas was complaining that I was taking too long and his face started to turn red, but that was all part of the whole experience, right?!?!

After his badge was pinned on, Molly ran over to see what was going on. Abby stayed at the table eating her cake!!

Congratulations, Thomas! We are so proud of you!!!
