Walker and Eli received their Eagle Scout Awards last night at their Court of Honor! It was a proud moment for this Momma! ❤️
Handsome young men!
Four boys received their Eagles tonight.
On of the boy’s grandmother’s cross stitched this for him.
Before they received their Eagles they had to be awarded some merit badges first. 🙂
The boys recognized a Mentor, someone who has helped them on their journey to reach this point. Eli melted our hearts as he chose his big brother. 💕
He spoke about how Walker is always there for him and always puts himself second and makes you feel like a top priority, even if he has things going on in his own life. He told us how Walker has helped him by being there for him and he never has to go through anything by himself. And he’s taught him how to be a good person.
What more could a mother ask for?? Oh my heart was just bursting seeing that my boys love and respect each other so much. So many people came up afterwards and commented about how touching and moving it was. And that these boys have such a special relationship. <3
Grandma and Grandpa Morrison were there but we didn’t get a picture with them. They had to leave early. But both of them were crying and if anyone came to tell the boys how neat it was they’d just start up again with the water works. 🙂 It meant so much to my parents that they got to come and see this.
Walker chose his Deacon leader, Bro. Durfee, who really made a big impact on his life. Even though he was only 12 at the time, the stories, life experiences, and teachings, about what it means to be a man and a father has stayed with him in a deep and meaningful way. He is a great man. He’s faith and wisdom are so deep and in so many ways I feel Walker is just like him. <3
After the boys recognized their Mentors they were invited to sit in the Eagle’s Nest with the other men and young men who have already earned their Eagle Award.
Then they recognized Eli, as he also earned a Bronze Palm on top of his Eagle. Pretty awesome!!
