Girl Scout Night

Last night, our family attended the year-end awards banquet for Hannah's Junior Girl Scout troop. We had a great time seeing all the families and just sitting back and watching Hannah relate with her girlfriends!

The evening started with an exhibit of "Trashy Art" projects. The girls were to create works using only household trash. Hannah came up with the idea of a toilet paper/paper towel tube log cabin. We ran with that idea and included grocery sack trees, napkin curtains, and tissue smoke coming out of the chimney! I am rather fond of the little red door made out of an animal cracker box...
Many of the girls in the troop (including Hannah) were recipients of the Bronze Award, the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can earn. It required many hours of helping younger Daisy and Brownie troops as well as community service. Hannah also received the badges she earned this year.
The moms were invited to pin the girls' Leadership Pins on their vests. A proud, sweet moment for this Mama... The girls recited the Girl Scout Law and the Girl Scout Promise...

...and shared one final Circle of Friendship.
