August 2005 -- III

Astrid, with Girl Scouts from many troops, is ready to march in the DeWitt Ox Roast parade. (Her important job was to carry all the extra candy.)

And away we go!

Ursula was so excited to be able to participate in a Girl Scout event, and has been telling us that she wants to be 5 just like Ahdee so she can be a Girl Scout too (and get a special dress with a dot in the middle).

Ursula helped hand out candy, but she would sometimes get shy just before handing over the candy and walk away with it, much to the dissappointment of the children who were about to get it.

The Gunnisonville Church had a booth with free crafts at the Ox Roast after the parade. We got a very nice turn-out, and almost all of Astrid's Girl Scout friends stopped by.

Maggie and Gracie also enjoyed the crafts.

Ursula enjoyed doing the crafts (again, since she'd already done them all with me as one of my "test cases").

It is a bit hard to tell in the picture, but there is more glitter on Ursula's face than on her visor.

Astrid found this all amusing.

Mrs. Hagy told some stories.

Mrs. Higbee and Mrs. Headley try their hands at kite making.

This little girls spent a lot of time, thought, and care on her visor, and it really showed. She should be very proud!
