Clay Bowls Full of Love & Memories

So this summer Bridge was a busy Girl Scout Daisy. As you can imagine we were busy parents. She had a Twilight Camp, a Day Camp, and 3 Summer Extreme Events. She worked hard (with some help from us) to sell cookies. She met her medium goal of 500 packages sold. She picked her events. Dave and I discussed them and decided we'd make sure she could do all 5. Originally I was going to volunteer at the camps but then I found about my Daddy. Not wanting to make a commitment I couldn't keep we paid what the Cookie Bucks didn't cover. I cannot thank Dave enough for working hard and making it work. It was a great summer of events. Sure to keep reinforcing hard work pays off. Plus, she's so proud of her vest and talking about how she earned all the patches on it. So for the time being Girl Scouts is a big interest to her.

Today I am talking about her first Summer Extreme Event. Just for the record, two of her three Summer Extreme Events. My Buddy and Me is just what it says. Bridge and one other adult person. I was signed up as her Buddy for both her My Buddy and Me Events.

Her first Summer Extreme was called Klay Kids. We learned how to work with clay and form shapes. We made bowls. It was fun and a great learning experiecne. I was impressed how well she was following directions and forming her bowl. The clay was all prepared for us. So, all we had to do was flatten it and roll it out. Lucky for both of us, and probably most everyone there, we didn't have to free form the bowls. There were molds. Big molds for the girls as they would be slightly easier and various other size molds for the Buddies. I helped Bridge roll her clay out and that was about it. She helped me decorate mine. Neither of us noticed that we stamped the frogs on mine upside down. But I don't think it matters much at all.

Those bowls are proudly displayed in the living room. They're wonderful memories of the fun and learning experience. I hope these bowls last a very, very long time. I hope to hear Bridge tell her kids and maybe even grand kids about how those bowls were made.
