instead of your scout pinning you and possibly snagging whatever you have on, (and the awkwardness of his hand in your shirt, lol) just have him pin the necklace. and it's a great way to keep track of your pins and show off your sons accomplishments at every scout event.
here's my sister-in-laws necklace...as you see, it's almost completed. can't wait to have an eagle scout nephew next year! way to go T!
