Matthew, on the left, is the son of Brian and Jody, and Brandon, on the right, is the son of Michael and Hope. It took a little bit for them to relax and warm up to the camera, but it wasn't long before they were pressing the button on the camera, too!
The two raised fingers stand for two parts of the Cub Scout Promise -- "to help other people" and "to obey the Law of the Pack". The two raised fingers also look like the sharp ears of the wolf ready to listen to Akela (ah-KAY-la, means "good leader"; the boy's adult partner/parent is considered to be Akela).
The Cub Scout Salute is serious stuff ... you can tell by their faces! The Salute is a way for the Scouts to show respect to their den leaders. They also salute the flag to show respect for their country.
A light-hearted moment ... love those smiles!
We enjoyed having you at the Studio and hope you'll come back and visit us again sometime soon!
