BOY SCOUTS RULE!!!!

Elijah performed his Eagle Scout service project the Saturday before I left for Ohio. He rocked it. He had some great volunteers (thanks Dad) that helped him. They cleaned out underneath the stadium at the high school...and this ain't the usual open stadium seating that I grew up with...this was enclosed, nasty, and full of black widow spiders...yeah...you read that right....

This was followed by cleaning up a bunch of old wood that was piled up outside of the theater area of his school from a couple of plays that the drama department had produced...and where I personally witnessed two scorpions and killed one...yea...it wasn't very zen of me, but hey, it was a SCORPION...'nuff said...

Here are some pictures...props to the boy...he rocks....all the boys scouts do....they're part of something bigger and better than most of the stuff going on today....rock it dudes!!!!!
Above is the before and below is the after for the stadium.

Below is Elijah (oftentimes referred to as "little Eli")....cute, isn't he?

Below is our killer group of volunteers...they are the best!!!!!
Below is the hideous scorpion mansion before Elijah and the crew cleaned it up and out.

And after....

Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork!!!!

Fantastic! Did he get his Eagle yet, or has he not gone before the panel?
