We all went to my daughter’s “Girl Scout Bridging Ceremony” last night, but of all the people there, there were only 4 males (including my son and I).
We got there are 6:00pm but the actual Bridging Ceremony would begin until 8:00pm. I feel pretty comfortable around people anymore but after 15 minutes, my son and I decided to leave the group and walk around a pond that was close by. To stay with the Girl Scout group felt like we were intruding.
As we were walking around the nearby pond, we could hear the laughing floating across the pond along with the songs they were singing. I’m glad my daughter was having a great time!
After our walk, my son and I played around a bit, but started to get bored. That’s when I remembered my time saving book that I left in the car for such situations. I was able to finish a entire chapter before the ceremony stated while my son played games on my blackberry.
Once the ceremony started, other males started to arrive for the celebration too. I enjoyed the event, watching my daughter laugh, giggle, jump around and run around with her friends. That said I have to admit I enjoyed finishing that chapter in my most recent book too. It made the wait that much more enjoyable, plus I was out of sight of the pre-ceremony activities.
All in all, the event was a good one, and my daughter seemed pretty happy!
