I am really excited that he is getting this opportunity. He worked really hard this summer doing several jobs for a few different people in order to raise the funds that he needed in order to go...and he actually went beyond and has some spending money to go with it. A grant to help pay for a portion of the trip was also awarded to him through the Boy Scouts. I am very proud of the young man that he is becoming, and looking forward to hearing about the adventures he is about to undertake and all the growing that will come from this trip. I think that this is a great beginning into his up coming Freshmen year in High School.
