Summer Catch Up- Jim edition

Here is a little glimpse into Jim's amazing summer.
He has grown and matured so much.
I guess you could say it all started when he received his arrow of light in club scouts.

"The Arrow of Light award is the highest award available to Cub Scouts. It requires the Scout to have earned the Webelos Scout badge and eight activity badges. In addition to the skill and activity requirements of the preceding ranks, the Arrow of Light requires Scouts to learn the Scout Promise and Scout Law, and visit one meeting and one activity of a Boy Scout troop, in preparation for advancing to the Boy Scouts. "
From: Cub Scout Wiki

He also crossed over into Boy Scouts. From there it was onto the big stage!
He had fun playing a couple roles in a local production of Aladdin. The beginning of summer also meant the end of 5th grade!
He was so excited to graduate....he was on pins and needles! Then the proud day came!
No more elementary school! Next it was onto Kidpointe Kamp.
Time to make friends, play games, learn new things and praise God! There was a brief stay at Hopkins to clean up a couple things. Next it was off to Boy Scout camp. Jim was only home for a day when he was off on a mission trip. He served the community of York, Pa.
and served his fellow missionaries. There was also a little time for fun! To round out the summer we took a trip to Raven's stadium.

After all this fun you would think..."Can there be more?!"
On August 21st (drum roll please).......
Jim was baptized!

And, On August 23 he turned..... 13
(and experienced his first earth quake) !
