Prima Donna is getting her Girl Scout Gold Award at the Recognition of Excellence ceremony next month. These aren't at all like a Court of Honor for the boy scouts. First of all, they only do them once a year. Secondly, they have them at a hotel downtown. This one is at the City Creek Marriott. They also include lunch for her and two guests.
It's a big, huge deal!
But not only does she have to do all the work to qualify and earn the award (which she did over a year ago), she also had to make a trifold that will be put up in the foyer of the hotel so that all the other scouts can see what she did to earn her Gold. That's due now and she finished it last night so that I can take it down to the council office today.
She did such a good job I wanted to share it with all of you.
As for me, life is insane. Dance started up again this week and we have Nutcracker auditions and volleyball, football, Activity Days, and scouts. I'm trying to reform my troop and get a calendar ready for the rest of the year. We are having an 80th birthday for my dad on Sunday with all the family here, so we are trying to get the house ready and plan a meal for 40 people.
And today is my 32nd Anniversary. My sweetie is working although he is going to try to get away so we can go to lunch. He has been putting in long hours this week so he can prepare to travel next week. I have to defend the grant at the Arts Council tonight and Sport has football pics so we can't really go out this evening.
Some people think that at 18 you don't really know what you want to do with your life, but for me, it was the perfect age to get started on my lifelong journey with my best friend. Why walk the path alone? We have had some amazing adventures.
I'd do it all over again.
