My grandnephew, Jordan Sweet, turned 17 this past Wednesday. We have spent time with his family celebrating his birthday every year for several years now. Unfortunately, other commitments keep us from being able to celebrate with him this weekend.
In recent years, he has combined his invitation for us to celebrate his birthday with his Boy Scout pancake breakfast, which happened to occur on the weekend that he was having a family birthday party! In 2011, I took pictures of the event.
Within a couple of years, Jordan became an Eagle Scout. His project was to create a library at a center for foster children, since he loves to read more than just about anything else. We are so proud of the young man he’s becoming!
