Girlguiding District Sleepover – Day 2

So after dealing with the gate guards not letting in the delivery guys before 9AM everything else today went off without a hitch.  Before we had arrived the girls had already finished the yard sale – Syd didn’t find anything that she couldn’t live without.  When we rolled in just before noon there were tons of parent volunteers helping with the lunch setup.  Lunch featured dishes from each of the founding countries and all of those dishes were prepared by parents.  After lunch the girls practiced their dance for the celebration show- I even got roped into running the sound board.  Once the parents started to arrive the girls gave a presentation on the history of the BGIFC and their founding countries.  Sydney is a sixer (platoon leader) for her Brownies so she was asked to present France.  Then all of the girls put on a little dance routine to “Celebration” which was really cute.  Amanda (the District Commissioner) MC’d the event and after closing the ceremonies all that was left to do was eat the cake!  Anita had several cakes with the Centennial logo on them and our two Guiding Ambassadors came to cut the cake for the girls.   It’s been really cold (well cold for Kuwait – not cold enough to break out pants or anything but I did get on my new sweatshirt a couple times last week) lately and last night was no exception.  Several of the girls had the sniffles by the time the day was over.  Sydney had a great time but she’s definitely coming down with something so she’s konked out already.  You can check out all the fun below.
