Happy Birthday, Boy Scouts of America!

Today is the 100th Anniversary of the incorporation of the Boy Scouts of America by William D. Boyce.  On behalf of my family, I'd like to thank him and the other men who gave of their time, their talents, and their treasure to build this organization that significantly impacted the life of my family.

How significant?  Hubs and I met while chaperoning a Sea Scout Bridge & Ball.  

Our boys are Eagles; we've welcomed Japanese Scouts into our home; we've traveled there.  There's been a lot of camping--in sun & snow, by car and by backpack--since.  And we've made some great friends along the way!
