We joined American Heritage Girls this year. Our troop is made up of homeschoolers and it has such a family feel to it. Most of the big activities the whole family is invited so my boys are having some fun memories with it too! They had a ceremony Monday to welcome the new girls and hand out badges. My daughter received a her first badge and her AHG pin. She was so excited and so proud! Her first badge was her pet badge, they had a park day where you could bring your pet and we took Max our lab. Then we(yes, I had to help) stood up and told about our specific dog. One girl even brought a turtle! Here is a picture of my sweet girl getting her badge and pin.
