Congratulations to Zach!


Congrats to Zachary who received the Silver Medal of Achievement in Royal Rangers last night!!!!
(it is the second highest achievement in the Royal Ranger program) He is the first young man in our outpost to earn it. We are so proud of him!
I'll never forget the two of us sitting on the coach and looking through the materials to see what was involved in earning each of the medals. He and I were both blown away by the requirements for the Gold. (which is similar to Eagle Scout in the Boy Scout program) At the time, he and I both thought maybe he would eventually get the Bronze. I remember thinking, 'this is a home school education in and of itself!' Then last year, he achieved the Bronze, yesterday the Silver and now he's working towards the Gold! Awesome job, Zach!!! : )
This is a sleepy picture is of Zach (left) and Nathan (right) at the Ranger of the Year competition for our region of the state last August. (don't they look handsome in their uniforms?!) ; )
