Yesterday, we had our homeschool Girl Scout troop meeting. The Princesses cleaned the cage of our half moon conure, Pitbull, and put the California king snake in a smaller container so that they could show them to the rest of the troop. Therefore, for our troop meeting, we had those two pets to play with, and we began making decorative bowls out of magazine pages. We worked on using our good manners throughout the activities, which goes toward their Manners Count Patch, and we discussed how making something out of what would normally be considered trash (old magazines) goes along with the Girl Scout law of "using resources wisely". It was a fun time until the snake died. We don't have a clue as to why he died. Princess Melody was heartbroken.
After the meeting, we took the snake to the pet store, so that they could properly take care of his remains. Melody went to work, and Abbey and I got to the task of working on her Forestry and Wildlife Conservation course. Abbey went to archery class, and Tarja and I worked on her time4learning.com activities.
In between those things, I turned in a large Avon order, which made me very happy.
Have a Great Day!
