Rachel received a white rose tonight for starting her first year in American Heritage Girls.
She is 6 years old so she is in the Pathfinder program. Melissa and I are Pathfinder co-leaders (although Melissa does most of it and plans amazing activities).
Melissa gave Rachel a birthday present. A pink frog from the movie Rio. As you can see, Rachel LOVES her new friend :)
Melissa planned a fun activity to teach the second Pathfinder Stepping Stone which is "Love God". She had 7 paper bags and each bag had something inside it to represent one of the Days of Creation. For the first day, there was a flashlight in the bag because God divided the light from the dark. On the second day, God created the atmosphere and separated it from the waters...so there was a water bottle in the bag. How cute!
We talked about each day and Rachel colored a corresponding coloring page.
Of course, on the sixth day, God created man and woman. We also talked about how God created another wonderful blessing. Melissa pulled out a mirror and said, "God created you!" Rachel had fun looking in the mirror!
Pathfinder girls have a big sister mentor. Rachel's big sister is so sweet with her and Rachel loves her dearly.
