They did hours and hours of community service projects, helping out animals and then finally they did their big project of holding a Dog Adoption.
Several families and dogs have been matched and are now living happily together because of these girls.
The beautiful Wyndham Hotel was kind enough to provide us, free of charge, one of their lovely meeting rooms so we could have our ceremony there.
Thanks goes out to Trinity's Grandma, Maureen, for setting this up for us.
Elizabeth is this months troop assistant leader so she was the one in charge of carrying the flag.
I was beaming with pride as I'm sure each parent was too.
Then Michelle spoke to the group. Afterwards, the girls each came up to the table.
One by one, they took their candle and lit it from the flame of a candle that could be traced back to the first flame lit by the founder of the Girl Scouts in 1912.
After the candle was lit they each recited two lines of the Girl Scout Law.
I will do my best to be, Honest and Fair. Friendly and helpful.
Considerate and caring. Courageous and Strong.
It was then time to take photos with their parents.
They loved them and all wanted to wear them over to the Rainforest Cafe while we had lunch.
Elizabeth got a little dog on a big leash. So sweet!
This was all that was left.
It was a special day that I know I won't forget and I have a feeling the girls won't either.
These are five super girls that I love with all my heart and I'm very thankful that they allow me to be their leader.
Great job girls! You all ROCK!

They also talked to the girls about keeping our world a clean and better place.
After we hit up all the vendors, we went down the street to the park. They were having a Pet Adoption, which of course the girls wanted to go to.
Then we had a picnic lunch and the girls spent some time playing on the playground. We all had a lot of fun and had a great day.
We sang happy birthday and enjoyed some yummy chocolate cupcakes that Elizabeth brought.
We cleaned up and put things away and I sent them all home to be with their families.
Once again, we had another fun night.
