Earning His Beads

About a year and a half ago when Chris was the scoutmaster, he went to a scout leader training camp called Woodbadge. He loved it!!! There, they made goals for themselves and their troop to do when they returned home. When these goals were completed, the group was supposed to get together to receive their awards.

Sunday night, we drove to Fruit Heights so Chris could receive his award with his group. I was a little nervous to hear that the awards were called "beads." Since Chris is from Louisiana and participated in Mardi Gras back when he was young and "unreformed," I am slightly familiar with what "earning beads" means. I asked Chris if the scout beads were earned for doing the same as at Mardi Gras. Thankfully, the answer was "NO!"
So here is my cute husband with his Woodbadge certificate and beads around his neck (behind the certificate.) Way to go, Chris. You are a cheese!
