Caleb was not feeling too well that day, head cold and pinched nerve that gave his right leg pain, but the show still happened. Caleb did great! As Rob put it, "For a service project run by a 13 year old, it was great!" Caleb feels that it went really well. I think that the residents enjoyed the singing. I, Diedre, hope that there are enough decorations to make their home look cheery for the holidays and that we did enough. You know, basic mom worries of, "Did we do enough?" Peter said this, "Mom, I think that the people there just liked having us come and spend time with them." Peter speaks the truth.
So, an Eagle project. The scout is supposed to learn leadership skills and serve his community, "help others at all times." I hope Caleb learned some of that while doing all the work for this project. He did not enjoy me reminding him of things here and there. He did not enjoy the footwork of approaching strangers and asking for their help or donations. The paperwork is still to come, so I am sure there will be more nagging to get that done. However, my hope is that Caleb had JOY in his service to others. Also, that this small piece of service helps the people at Beehive Homes feel special and cared for.
