Girl Scout Jamboree at Williamsburg 10-3-09
What a fun time we had! My friend and co-leader Noreen and I took our girls to Williamsburg, VA for the Girl Scout Jamboree. They had a lot of fun things to do there. They also earned patches! Noreen's daughter Rebekah and Kyra even were allowed an hour to discover Williamsburg on their own! They even took pictures! Our favorite parts of the day were "sacrificed sandwich" (so we could eat bee free), the jail, the special house they opened just for girl scouts, and when we were asked how to bring 4000 Girl Scouts to attention by the drum and fife band. Signs up!! We finished the day marching with them down to the courthouse where we said the pledge of allegiance and the Girl Scout promise. We then visited a couple shops with Glenna and her troop. Toys and Candy what could be better??!! Finally we stopped at a 50's McDonald's on the way home for dinner. It was almost 11 before we got settled in bed for church the next morning. It was a gloriously beautiful day with great friends!
