Alex was receiving his first palm after acheiving his Eagle. For those of you who aren't familiar with scouts to receive a palm you must complete 5 more merit badges AFTER earning your Eagle award. This is also another 1st. Neither Bryan or I are in scout uniforms. This is the first time at least one of us has not been in scouts. Bryan says he feels naked. Congrats to Alex. He will be receiving his 2nd palm the end of April. He should have had both by the end of last year but our troop is a little SLOOOOW.
