Daisy Scout Investiture Ceremony
This has been a long time coming, but Troop 462 FINALLY did their investiture ceremony tonight. We started mid year last year and then had a new member join toward the end of that school year and then we had another new member join at the beginning of this school year. I wanted to do it once, so we finally did it tonight and combined it with their holiday party. The girls all knew their GS Promise and did an excellent job reciting it! They received their Girl Scout pins, so I suppose it's official now!
We did a family cake decorating contest as part of the party. When I was a Brownie, Daddy and I decorated a cake for a similar thing. I still remember that (which is quite a feat considering how horrible my memory is) and it was such a fun thing that we did together. Our cake was very homemade looking and true to tradition, this one was no prize winner either...but we all worked on it and The Hart Family was quite proud of it's cuteness...winner or not. (And by not winner, I mean it rec'd no votes...we didn't even vote for it ourselves.)
