Thank you for visiting my blog today. Originally it was started in 2006 as a way to chronicle our overseas adventure, but it has turned into a place where I share my heart after my husband's untimely death at the age of 40. You can read more about his brief, but fierce battle with a rare cancer on his caring bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/rob_murphy.

Blue and Gold
February's Blue and Gold is an exciting time! The scout's work hard all school year on their rank requirements and are awarded their new rank during this ceremony. I was so sad not to be able to be there with my den. I had already begun transitioning leadership over to the parents who had stepped up to leave when I was supposed to move in March, but then abruptly gave everything up when Rob was hospitalized earlier this month. I was hopeful to still be able to attend the Blue and Gold, but it didn't end up happening and so I was very thankful for Linda and Jamie (Evan's Mom and Dad) who seamlessly transitioned the den to "theirs" and for Grandma Ann who stood in as Micah's parent during the rank ceremony. The Pack also recognized Noah who has been such a great example and help as Den Chief.
