We have had some fun with friends lately. This Mama knew she better do some things now...like go to the zoo...when she could still waddle fast enough to keep up and enjoy the day. So, we invited H-Mama, Nator, and Gracie to come along.
We had a great day! AND, I walked the whole way! I'm telling you, those $6 wheelchair rentals were looking good at one point. We had the zoo to ourselves, and it was nice and chilly. A perfect day.
And I also have some stellar shots from MY camera, such as this one:
We've also done several things with our Keepers at Home club (which consists of one other family and us). Yesterday's meeting was all about keeping it simple. The girls are working on their Snacks Badge so they learned to make real lemonade, which we then compared to made-from-a-mix lemonade, and trail mix. Then we did a simple craft.
Also, they continue to work on their Plastic Canvas Badges.
And they learned to make "Dirt" at another meeting.
The baby will come right about the time that we need to be wrapping up our Keepers club for the year and giving out the badges they've earned. We'll have to see how that all works out. Did I ever show you the pictures of Christmastime when they had their first badge ceremony?
|They had a display table with pictures and examples of things they had done in the fall.|
|Each girl earned 3 badges.|
|Proud Little Bit.|
|Pinning on Sweetheart's badges.|
|She really enjoyed getting these. Earning the badges was her favorite part of Girl Scouts back when we did that.|
|Then we had refreshments.|
|Two sets of grandparents were able to be there, which made the evening special.|
|Enjoying refreshment time.|
|Then we all went to look at Christmas lights together.|
But enough about fun with friends, my to-do list this week is 2 pages long. Yes, that is ALL for THIS week! I am ready for this 50th anniversary reception to get here. Off to get started on my list!
