Girl Scout Bridging
We went to my school tonight to use the bridge over the pond for our bridging ceremony from brownies to juniors. I gave the camera to one of our moms who took adorable pictures, but since I don't have permission to post pictures of all the girls on my blog, I thought I'd post this one of Anna. She must get her photogenic gene from me.
I cobbled together a little ceremony out of bits and pieces from the internet. I thought it all came together very nicely. We sang two songs, recited the Girl Scout promise and law, included a couple of poems about bridges and friends, and even shared memories of brownies and wishes for juniors. The girls wanted to eat brownies and junior mints symbolically, so we did that too.
Kurt is out of town for the week, and wildfires are looming. Strange things always happen when he goes out of town; from illness out of the blue to subpoenas to court. I'm thinking evacuation for wildfires would be about right. If it weren't too early for hurricane season I'd be checking the weather forecast. We're running the air right now, not because it's too hot, but just to keep the smoke outside. I need to go watch the news to check for school closings. I remember as a kid watching the news for snow days. I never would have dreamed I'd be checking for hurricane and smoke days.
