girl scout troop 11307 earns a badge!

Girl scout troop 11307 [which I`m in] went on a trip to the Baker Park and we earned a badge! We learned all about swans and how they were going extinct and then the park brought some swans to there and they have over 2,000 swans now. The place is really beautiful! We went on a walk and looked at leaves and we saw some swans floating in the lake. They were trumpeter swans. When we past the spot where there was the swans Caitlyn did not know they were trumpeter swans, even I had no idea! I thought they were just geese! [this all happened in the car when we were in the place and just about to drop me of ] Then, after our walk, we all met back at the lodge and talked about swans and air pollution and we came up with ideas to help there not to be so much air polluting and then she brought out a real swans wing! We all passed it around and she said only to stroke it with one finger. It was so soft! After that, I separated into my group that I was going to drive home with. I had so much fun! Right before I hopped out of the car she gave me my badge. I ran up our steep drive way and into my house. The family was all watching my family`s favorite show,biggest loser! Its were people lose wait and they weigh themselves on a scale every week to see how much they have lost. Then a person goes home. Its on every Tuesday night at seven until nine.

  1. Abby,
    I am so glad that you are learning about wild life and pollution. They are two very important things to learn. Keep earning those badges. Girl Scouts is a really good thing. Keep up the good work.


I love to hear from you!
