I'm going to be a wreck!

Recommended Posts

I got all choked up when my oldest son crossed over five years ago. But it's going to be MUCH more emotional tomorrow night--that son, now 16, is a member of the Order of the Arrow ceremonies team that will cross over the Webelos 2 den that includes his little brother. I'm the Cubmaster, so I suppose I should try to maintain some sort of dignity, but I just KNOW I'm going to cry!

I know how you feel.Last year my youngest crossed over the bridge to Scouts. My oldest (Troop SPL) was waiting on other side welcomed him and helped change his neckerchief to the Troop's. Totally a Mom tear moment.Congrats to both your son and you.

Mom, my wife and I did the same thing a year ago. One piece of advice, if at all possible, turn that part of the ceremony over to an Assistant or even one of the den leaders. For those moments, you need to be a parent, not the Cubmaster.
