With about 12 hours to spare before the deadline, Ty had his Board of Review and earned his Eagle Scout Award!
Years and years of Scout camps, pushing and pulling him to PowWow's at BYU, one unbelievably time-consuming Project (we gathered, bar-coded, labeled, and entered 8000 books into the computer at our Charter School), 2 years of ignoring that the deadline was approaching, one month of frantically trying to gather reference letters and interviews (thanks Brother Cox!), and squeaking in the Board of Review just before time nearly ran out.
At least now we know what to expect. Ryan has everything done but getting a merit badge signed off. I already wrote HIS parent recommendation letter, and dated it May 30, 2010. I told him he had until then to follow through, and that I'm NOT re-typing it with a new date. It's by then or never :) Stay tuned to see if he gets it done....
