Anyway, she was sworn in or whatever they call it last night in a ceremony involving all three levels. As might be predicted, she was the most enthusiastic Spark, Brownie or Guide there. I am not saying that is necessarily always a good thing, but she was quite delightful last night.
Thanks to a fast camera and a zoom lens, I was able to snap one or two pictures. I know it's hard to picture me with a camera, but there you have it.
|She was in her element from the very beginning.|
|As pleased as punch, she was.|
|The promise is a serious thing.|
|Singing Guide songs was fun.|
|For one song in particular, they were encourage to shout loud and clear.|
Of course, she obliged.
When they first marched in, they were to sing a song. The older Guides came in first, and you could hardly hear them. The singing got progressively louder as the younger kids came in: first the Brownies and then the Sparks. What a pity that people become self conscious about singing, for it is one of the joys of human life. We don't have to sing well, but we should all sing.
