Girl Scout water safety badge
Last week, we met some members of Mary's new Girl Scout troop at a pool near here to work on a water safety badge. The head lifeguard, who is also a kindergarten teacher, taught the girls how to rescue someone, how to tread water with your clothes on, and how to make a flotation device out of your pants. It was nice to meet some of the girls and moms we'll be seeing more of this year. This week, we ran into one of the families from scouts at the library, and we recognized each other. So, in addition to the friends we already had here, we're starting to meet new people.
