He's not quite 12 yet and he's nearly as proud of himself as his parents are of him. My youngest has been a Boy Scout for a little over a year and just earned the rank. He's very enthusiastic about scouting and is planning his next merit badge and how he'll meet his requirements for the next rank.
He loves the camping. He loves the meetings. He loves the challenges and the action. He even loves helping the older scouts with their Eagle projects -- 2 completed since he bridged, another one scheduled for next month.
Mom is enjoying the more relaxed role of troop committee member instead of Den Leader.
