Blue and Gold Banquet
At the end of February, Hyrum had his first Blue and Gold Banquet for scouting.
To start the night off, it was a pot luck dinner. After everyone had eaten, Hyrum's pack of wolves did a skit about keeping the Earth clean. It was really cute.
Next, the awards for Hyrum's pack were handed out.
Hyurm and Brandon have been working very hard to help Hyrum pass off everything. At this banquet, Hyrum was able to receive his bobcat badge and his first yellow bead. Hyrum was able to pin on me the bobcat pin for the mothers.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S Monson
Sisters, there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you.—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
