The Boy Scout troop needed to help the boys pass off an outdoor flag ceremony. So I arranged it with Dr Bryner Principal at Matt’s school Hillfield to use their flagpole and Jake English to be our official scout flag person to teach us. Here are some pics from that day. Matt was again an honorary scout so that there were enough people holding this huge flag so that our leader Anna Stoddard did not have a coronary as it almost touched the ground 🙂 .

The boys were both allowed to compete in the Pinewood Derby this year. Andrew was in it because he is in Boy Scouts (and he LOVEs it and is thriving- big surprise). Matt was able to compete with the Boys Scouts because the ward was invited to participate and when it came down to it, we needed more competitors on the scouts side, so he was an honorary scout for the day. First they had the weigh in and official registration to get their names on the board.
They had fun, Andrew was able to make it past the first tier, as was Matt.
All in all, a fun evening.
