Day 32 / 105 - Woodwork Merit Badge
Our son is slowly adjusting to his new Boy Scout troop here in Charlotte. His busy Cross Country schedule this fall has prevented him from attending some events. Now that the season is winding down, he is able to involve himself more regularly.
For two Saturdays he attended a Woodwork Merit Badge camp. It did requite a little bit of effort and work on his part. I expected him to come home with a bird house. Surprisingly, his final project was the pen pictured above. The photo doesn't even do it justice. It's beautiful, and he's incredibly proud of it. Plus, he's been motivated to complete his school work with it, so that's just an added bonus!
