Piper's Girl Scout Bridging

Piper's Girl Scout troop had their bridging one Saturday afternoon. What does bridging mean? It is a ceremony where the girls receive awards and badges for their achievements. Also, depending what age they are, they may transition to the next membership level in Girl Scouts. Piper is a Brownie. She did not bridge to a Junior this year, which is the next membership level. She will be in 4th grade next year and then will be a Junior. 

Piper got to do the honors of lighting one of the candles. 
Saying the Girl Scout Promise...
Seven was really tired! He has a piece of cake in front of him, but it kinda looks like the zzzz's are winning.
Piper and Makalie are best friends! They can be quite ornery together. Often they switch name tags with each other. Ms. Anita called Piper up to get her awards and  Makalie went up because she had on Piper's name tag. So, she was Piper. Then Ms. Anita said, "Will the real Piper come up, please?" Quite comical those girls!
I think they were still laughing about it in this picture. But here is Piper accepting her awards and new badges to put on her sash.
It had poured rain that day for hours. The town we live in floods when we get a significant amount of rain. For some reason, whoever built the town decided it was a good idea to let the streets be the drainage system, rather than building an actual drainage system. Since it hadn't rained a good amount in such a long time, the kid's rain boots had gotten small on them. We bought them some new ones that morning. We found rain boots in the correct size for everyone but Rilian at the first store we went to. We went to another store to find some for Rilian. Only Rilian and Jeremy went in while the rest of us waited in the car. (When you have four kids, you don't always take all of them in the store if you are looking for just one thing.) These are the boots Rilian insisted he liked and wanted. He really liked the butterfly on them. So, JEREMY let him get them. He is SO proud of his boots!
I thought this was such a good picture of my beautiful Girl Scout, so I just had to include it!
