For the ceremony, the girls recited the Girl Scout promise, sang Yogi Bear and told what their favorite part of scouting was. My daughter said "I really enjoyed learning how to sew and embroider and I really appreciate it". That made me so happy since that has always been a goal of mine to teach other girls how to sew and embroider like my grandmother taught me.
I gave them each a bag with some goodies in it. It contained a packet of Daisy seeds to remind them of where they have been (as Daisy Girl Scouts), a brownie to remind them of where they are and a giant box of Junior Mints to get them to think about where they are going.
Sheridan was so proud to become a Junior. She was just beaming as she crossed the bridge in her new green vest to get her new Jr. pin put on by me.
I had such a great time being her leader for the last 4 years but it is now time for me to pass the torch to someone else. My business has gotten very busy and I need to keep what little sanity I have left. That is a picture of my hubby and Sheridan. I know you never see pictures of him. He is a bit camera shy but he does exist. :)
