Crossover from Cub Scouts usually occurs in the Spring but for various reasons, our Den decided to perform this time honored ceremony in December. Why not?? We're not doing much so hey, what's one more event?
See those arrows that Alex and his Den are holding? One night that week, over wine and desserts, the Moms (and one Dad) of Den 6 got together to make these very symbolic arrows. Each color represents an achievement in Cub Scouting. Together it represents The Arrow of Light. And that achievement is the only one along with his Religious Merit Medal that he can take along to Boy Scouts. Phew. Aren't you glad I took a second to explain? In short, it's a Big Deal.
So the moment came. The actual Crossing Over portion of the program. Ken performed the duty I love -- taking off of his last Cub Scout kerchief.
And then Alex's solemnly stepped over.
Then, Bella did her version. For some reason, I see protest marches in her future not scouting.
So take a moment now,think of some childhood milestone you accomplished and ask yourself was it worth it? For Alex, the answer so far is a resounding "yes!"
