I went to my granddaughter's bridging ceremony tonight. Yes, she actually crossed a little wooden bridge, removed her Brownie vest and received her Jr. Girl Scout vest, a daisy and candle, then stood in a circle. They each lit their candle, one by one, from their "sister" to their left until all were lit. They sang a song and then blew out their candle. It was so precious, I felt honored to be a part of it. After the ceremony, they had a reception with cakes, cookies, punch, finger sandwiches, fruit, etc. Although I could have had some grapes and strawberries, I stayed away from all of it and it didn't bother me. I was very proud of myself.
