Marching Beaver

On April 25th, Scouts celebrate St George's Day because as well as being patron saint of England, he is also patron saint of scouts.

It's the one parade of the year that every scout is asked to attend, and as you can see, my Beaver did, that's him, face turned towards me, the third of four boys in a row.

His Scout group led the parade today so after the flags came our Beavers!

It was fun to see him, and fun for me to be an "outsider", rather than in the thick of things, organising and arranging permission forms for the participants!

Adventure 100 - more than double!

We're loving doing Adventure 100, and it's been great fun to plan and do.

We still have loads more to do, but we're getting very close to giving out the first badges - the girls have to get 100 points and all 20 of the girls who have been Brownies since September or before are already way past 100. But they also have to get the 100 across 10 zones...and now six of our girls have accumulated points in nine zones...all they need is Up High to finish off, which we have planned just after the General Election.

The Brownies with the highest number are G and E, who have 230 points! Then A has 220 and H and P have 200. None of the others has less than 125 points so it's definitely time to start ticking off the last of the zones.

It's been great though, has challenged us to take the girls places we'd never normally have gone, such as a radio station and an observatory, play games in the dark, and so many other things. It's been a blast!

And next? A division camp and a district takeover.

Boo! Yay!

Not Guiding but...

Downside: My parents can't get their week away in Rome because they can't fly due to the volcano ash.

Upside: They are fine about it, will reschedule later in the year and in the meantime, they're going to spend a few days in the Peak District and then a few more with us!

Delivery route

Went out and delivered a multiple consent form to 21 of my 24 Brownies, it covers a trip to the fire station, the thing I'm not ready to talk about, a trip to a local playground and an evening at the scout campsite having a campfire.

Did it by bike, with daughter, she had her bike computer on so I know it was exactly 5km to get to all 21 houses from here. The 2 of the 3 missing girls live too far away to reach on an easy bike ride so will get theirs in the post, the third lives near enough to reach but not as well as the 5km as it involves a fair bit of hills, so we'll either tackle that later this week or I will post it too!
