Russell had his first appearance at a boy scout court of honor this evening. He received his first two merit badges, First Aid and Basketry. He earned them both at Camp Geronimo this past summer. He also officially received his Scout badge, but he has been wearing it since the end of May. We'll try to do some work on Astronomy merit badge while we're up there.
This weekend, the troop is going to Flagstaff for some camping and to visit Lowell Observatory. (Yes, I do indeed realize I was just there last week, but I didn't get to go inside.) I'll have some photos to share in a few days.
