Rites of passage

We had a special occasion to celebrate today.

I'll give you a hint. It is NOT my extraordinary growth and achievement in badge ironing. (Although perhaps a little recognition would be in order. Because the leader entrusted me with half of the new sashes and all the little numbers and stuff to go on them. I must be doing something right!)

There's a big hint. If you're not a former Girl Scout or mom of one, I'll just tell you. Bethany "flew up" today from Brownies to Juniors, in a very simple and sweet "bridging" ceremony. I thank God for organizations like Girl Scouts, especially their leaders, that assist us in our job of character development with our kids. Bethany declined to be photographed for the occasion. I hope THAT'S not another rite of passage!
