My son is 16. I think he's going to take it seriously enough to make Eagle.
He showed me a spread sheet he made showing what badges he needs and what he has partially done. Pretty much needs to do one item on each of 5 badges plus one whole badge and a project.
I think he wants to clean up a trail for his project.
But one thing I am doing is not even mentioning Scouts unless he does.
(though he is currently my Family Life slave MWA HA HA HA HA HA)
