Happy New Year!

Sorry for the dearth of posting. I just finished a week of visits by family and friends, at times with nearly 30 people in the house enjoying good food, drink, and conversation. The weekend was capped off by a joint (Boy Scout and Girl Scout) Court of Honor ceremony awarding the highest rank that Scouting offers to each of my children. Oldest and Middle Child are now, formally and officially, Eagle Scouts, and Youngest has earned her Gold Award.

They have earned their ranks and are fine young leaders. And, yes, I am a proud father of all three! They did good! :D

I hope that your New Year also started out well. Let's make 2010 the year in which we return our nation to the Founder's values.

Pax,

Newbius

Absolutely Awesome.

Congratulations to them and to their parents for the effort. I know from personal experience as a Scout and as Scouter/Parent the effort it must have taken.

Proud Parent moment indeed.

Newbius, that's awesome. Simply awesome. You have every right to be proud of your kids, and when you're done patting them on the back, pat yourself on the back too...
