Zach achieves his Bear patch in Cub Scouts.

A couple of days ago, our Cub Scout, grandson Zachary, got his Bear patch at the monthly Pack meeting.

What's so great about this is that Zachary has really worked hard to meet all the requirements for this milestone…and so have all the members of his extended family, with some (especially Michael "Baby Papa" and Jenny, his Mommy) helping with craft-type requirements like building his soapbox derby racer; some (Karen "Aunt K-K" and Mary, his grandmother) guiding him through book requirements like American history stories and home safety; and me ("Big Papa") accompanying him on camping trips and most of his weekly meetings. So it has really brought the family together, as if we didn't already orbit this little star.

Zach receives his badge and new rank from new Packmaster Ryan.
