In November, Charli Beth attended her first Cloverbuds meeting. Since then she has had one other event which was a parade. It was so cute and fun to watch her be so proud of being apart of another group. Because of course Girl Scouts does not involve horses and farm life, so we had to get involved in something else too.
Last night at her meeting they worked on speeches. They can all compete in a speech competition in March, so this was a little expertise to help prepare them. Charli has amazed me with how well she has spoke in front of this group. Her first meeting, where she did not know a soul was brave enough to get up in front of them all and talk about her "brother Gunner" since it was "Bring in your pet for show and tell night." Which obviously we did not know about so she used my phone to show pictures off.
Her speech last night was about her favorite animal - Horses:
"Have you ever watched a beautiful animal run? I have and it was a horse. Horses are my favorite animal. They are my favorite animal because they are fast and beautiful. I do not have a horse but I hope to get one someday, so I can ride in a rodeo."
Be still my heart! She was so grown up standing up there. She may or may not compete in March but I hope these practices help her become a better speaker for the future!
Before the session ended they sang "The Baby Bumblebee Song." It was so funny and boy did she stand by the two cutest brother there!
