She’s a Brownie Girl Scout now …

Filed under: Victoria — Lex @ 9:03 pm

… or will be as soon as she performs the Good Deed that will allow her to turn her pin rightside-up. (I’m thinking she could paint the house.)

Victoria’s Brownie troop was activated late this afternoon in a ceremony in a darkened room in which each girl was led by a troop leader to a mirror on the floor that was serving as a forest pond into which each girl had to look to see herself. Immediately afterward, each girl received her pin — upside-down — and then shook hands with the girls who had gone before.

There will be photos, but the thing that likely will stay with me longest about this, besides V. slipping quietly over to exchange a high-five with me while she waited for the rest of the girls to get their pins, is Hooper, sitting up on Mommy’s lap as Victoria received her pin and shouting, “Good job, Sissy!”
