This was a fun, long weekend for our family. Friday morning at 7:30 Ryley took his Boy Scout Swimming Merit Badge test at the Palmer Pool. The test took about an hour and a half and was quite rigorous. He was also required to write a test beforehand, which was checked by the counselor. This is his second Eagle-required badge to have earned.
Later in the day we went up to Mr. Moore's house (our Scoutmaster) who held the annual Turkey Shoot. The boys camped overnight with the boys from their troop, as well as another troop who joined them. Saturday was the day of the big event. Isaac, Anna and I got there at about 10:00 so I could help Mrs. Moore with the food and prizes. The events in the contest were: Archery, Slingshot, Tomahawk, Big Bore, Shotgun, and .22.
