Have you Seen the Bridge!?

The past few weeks have been filled with ceremonies, end of year trips etc. The most exciting thing for both my younger kids was getting to cross the bridge in scouts. Nikolas has earned his Tiger rank in scouts and is now a wolf. The ceremony was so much fun for my tiger cubs (and the rest of the scouts) This rite of passage is one that the boys love as they feel they are growing up. The excitement of working towards rank is a great esteem builder! Here I am putting on Nikolas' new scarf, he is checking out the year of service pin and the tiger badge he just earned!
Here's Ariana- she is no longer a brownie girl scout but a Junior. She got her new vest in Green and is so excited. She practically ran across the bridge to get her new vest and awards I couldn't get another photo, and I had to put her back on the bridge to stage it after the ceremony! See photo below. Where has the time gone? My kids are all growing up! We just signed Ariana up to play the violin as well. I am so proud of them for all their hard work in scouts this year! We have all grown so much.

Congratulations to Ariana and Nikolas. I still have my green vest and all the patches I earned.
