Dave’s thoughts (such as they are)

Paul is an Eagle!

Eagle Scout Medal My oldest son, Paul, had his Board of Review last night, and is now an Eagle Scout. I am so proud of him, obviously.
After the board was finished with their deliberations, they took a moment for each member to share some of their observations about Paul. And his mom and I were invited in to hear these. The board was several adults, most of whom did not know each other, but all knew Paul from various places – school, church, scouting. It was great to hear all the positive observations they shared about Paul. And equally great to hear a consensus that he is the same kind of person in all these different environments.

The comments last night made it clear what we already knew about Paul: while he did work hard to meet all the Eagle requirements, he did not have to work to become the kind of person you expect an Eagle to be. He just is that kind of person.
He worked hard for this, obviously, but all that work served only to validate who he already was.

Congratulations, Paul!
