She's a JUNIOR officially now :O

Oh, trust me, I cried. Honestly, our troop leader made me cry more. That, and one of the mom's who told me her daughter came home after every minute full of joy and stories about how awesome I was. :(

But seriously! The day before Mother's Day, so I spent the whole weekend in tears, on and off, hehe

And if you don't know GS levels, the girls in blue smocks and vests? Those are "my" girls. I get to keep five of them next year :D

Wow! It's so weird that in just one year they can change so much. Just looking at them, they don't seem to change too much, but whenever I go and look back at my kids, I am just amazed at how quickly those gradual daily changes add up!

No, it's two years. Girl Scouts, the lower levels, are two years.
So, 2-3rd grade :D

How awesome that she is sticking with scouting. It's a great program. I do wish we could chose how quickly our children grow up. I'm still looking for a bubble to put Gabe in because I don't think I can handle the start of Kindergarten.

I told her she didn't have a choice. I committed to being a leader again, so she has to be a junior ;)

No, because she wants to do it too. Hell, even Ethan enjoys going.

I know it - it is just crazy how fast they grow!! My 10-year-old looks like a teenager sometimes and I'm not liking it one bit!!

She has changed so much! I hope your DH owns a good gun. He's going to need it here in a few years when boys come to call. ;)

I wish I could put the brakes on my kids growing. They are so sweet and innocent right now.

Great pics Sarah!!!
