Feb 28th GST823 Updates

Our last meeting was held on February 21st.  Here are a few things that were accomplished:

1 – Kyla completed her My Promise, My Faith Award which helps us explore how Girl Scouting and your faith offer similar ideas about how to act – and how Girl Scouting can tie into your faith. This is a pin that can be earned once a year for every year we are in Girl Scouts. All we have to do is choose a different line of the Law each year.

CMPMF1

Kaytlen, Aleah and Jayda previously completed the five steps and earned their pins.  Alexis is working on hers at home.

 

2 – Aleah & Jayda completed their Trailblazing Badge which extended from our night hike up the Sleeping Giant.  It was a physically challenging team-building exercise overall.  The girls brought snacks which they ate when we reached our destination at the top.  The practiced navigating using the Sky Map on their cell phones.  They also identified as many constellations as they could in the night sky.  Of course, Sky Map made it a very easy process.  The girls talked about the stories behind the stars from Greek mythology – Orions Belt = 3 kinds/3 sisters.  And we learned that Aleah is obsessed with Greek Mythology!

Trailblazing

In addition, both girls began working on their Night Owl Badge which will be completed at a later point in time.

 

3 – Our Cadettes – Jayda, Aleah and Alexis finished putting the plans together for their Brownie Girl Scouts Dance Workshop which will take place on Sunday, April 17th from 1 to 3pm at Aloha Dance Studio.  This workshop will enable the three girls to earn their LiA Award while the Brownies will earn their Dancer Badge.

They joined us in our class, learned some new techniques and had some fun!  We also swapped council fun patches.  And, they picked up the Aloha Patch Kit to work on so they can earn the Aloha Pumehana patch.  We hope they enjoyed their time on our beautiful island <3.  Maybe we will see them again next year?
