Fly like an EAGLE

On May 7th Gary recieved his Eagle Scout Award. He has worked very hard the past year to finish all of the requirements. He planned the Court of Honor and it turned out really nice. As the meeting was beginning Gary leaned over to me and said, "Is this a practice or is this real?" I laughed and said, "Yes, Gary this is real" He got this panicked look on his face and said, "I told everyone this was starting at 7 o'clock." I looked at the clock and saw that it was just a little after six. Well that explained why 2 of the people on the program weren't even there. Thankfully Gary's good scout leaders filled in for the missing speakers. Yes, the invitations DID say 6 PM. Anyway, that makes for a funny story. At least they got there in time for dinner:) Here's Gary giving his talk.

My mom and dad came from Las Vegas to be there for the Court of Honor. Grandpa Hafen presented Gary with a knife plaque that he made especially for Gary. Gary is the 13th grandson to recieve his Eagle.

We are very proud of Gary's great accomplishment. This was an important goal for him to reach and HE DID IT! Congratulations Gary!
