I spent my first day as a volunteer popping balloon trees, stuffing envelopes full of coupons, and giving rewards to kids who had finished Week 2 of the Summer Reading Program. Sometimes it got a little tedious, but it was way, way, WAY better than folding clothes!
Tomorrow night I will be going to a party. It will be the first time I've been to a sleepover in seven years. My parents outlawed them when I was ten; I'm still kind of surprised that my mom's letting me go. It's hosted by one of the women in the cast of "The Wizard of Oz" who we've known for like six years. Maybe that's why. She's super nice, and has totally amazing, gorgeous red hair. Carissa is the only red head I know who can look stunning in hot pink. I'm excited!
Purchased my first merit badges today: First Aid and Emergency Preparedness. I've done all of the requirements for 19 merit badges (mostly from going to school) and dad pretty much said what the heck just do it. Yay. I also got two Parade! patches, one for me and one for dad. Just for fun, because we participated. :)
