World Thinking Day

Every year Abby's Girl Scout troop attends and participates in a World Thinking Day event for Girl Scouts. It is a celebration of Girl Scouting and a time for Girls Scouts to think about other Girl Scouts all around the world.
Each year the girls parade in a flag from each country that has Girl Scouts while the name of each country is read. It's pretty neat.
This year Abby's troop has a deaf girl, Jenita, in it. (This is the same girl that is in Abby's class at school and is the reason that Abby has learned so much sign language in the last several months.) As our troop's presentation, they opted to have the girls all learn a song in sign language. Seeing as though it was for WORLD Thinking Day, they opted for the song "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands". I think it was a good choice!

I am so proud of all of these girls for learning the song and for learning how to communicate with Jenita!

I love that Abby has continued in Girl Scouts. She loves Girl Scouts! She often wishes that she had a younger (more fun) leader (Her leader is 85!!), but she has hung in there. She says that she would like to make it all the way through high school in Scouts! I would love that for her!
