I started my rank advancement in September. To become a tenderfoot, I had to record push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, long jump, and quarter mile run for the month so with the help of my brother Steve, and a new pull-up bar dad attached to our swing, I recorded the progress for the month. My bigest improvement was sit-ups. I don't know if my quarter mile run time ever changed however.

Certain first aid requirements were also necessary for advancement to tenderfoot and second class. Dad encouraged me to just get my First Aid Merit Badge since it was required and since it would help me with my rank and every other merit badge as well. So, First Aid was my first merit badge earned. I am officially on my way.
