American Heritage Girls
Most every other Tuesday I have had the privilege to help lead our local American Heritage Girl Troop. My group is called the Explorers and they are in the 4th-6th grade. I have so much fun with them! We have already earned a lot of badges and we have many fun things planned this year! We are hoping to earn our Archery badge next month 🙂 One of the badges the girls were interested in doing is a Cake Decorating badge. We had a Father Daughter Dance planned on the calendar, so we decided to have a sleepover the night before the dance and let the girls decorate a cake to bring to the dance.
The sleep over was a blast (I didn’t actually sleep over, but I left late and came back the next morning). My friend and one of the mom’s Alison, hosted. She owns Alison’s Cakery and was an excellent instructor. Berlin and I were most excited about the fact that they had chickens! She met one named Faith and Berlin kept calling the chickens “dog” lol.
The dance was also great! I did a Photo Booth and Alison’s dad was the DJ. The girls and their dads decorated frames at the craft table and I am going to print out 4×6’s of their Photo Booth pictures, so they can frame them : ) It was really special for me, because Grey was able to spend time with Berlin at the dance and Nigel got to dance with the “ladies”, as he called them lol.
