Tonight we attended Sophie's first function as a Daisy Scout - our whole family went on a hayride, did a craft that involved feathers and googly eyes, stood around a bonfire and toasted marshmallows, had hot apple cider and cocoa, and played games under the almost-full moon. And at the end of the night, she got her Hayride Badge (hers has a bunny on it too)! Seriously... how romantic do the words "moonlight hayride" sound?
While all of this is beyond cute, we're so excited to be in scouting again. Especially since the focus of Girl Scouts seems to have changed from when I was a girl to be more focused on "leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth." Amen to that!
