He had been asking to join since he was in Pre-k (4 years-old), but was told he'd have to wait until 1st grade.
So first chance we could (first week of school in his 1st Grade year), we attended a recruitment meeting and got him signed up. Within a week he was at his first meeting. Within two weeks he had his handbook, his official uniform, and was learning the boy scout handshake and code.
Now we are in full force with meetings and events and outings - Pack meetings, Den meetings (I still am not entirely sure which is which), community service projects, badge merits. It's crazy. I'm learning a LOT.
