It's not often I include details about my family on this blog--I sort of feel there should be a filter
|This is Devon, the blog's creative genius!|
I'm so freaking proud of my daughter!
This project she's undertaken, How to Rock Middle School, is a two-fold effort: 1) she had a crappy transition from elementary to middle school. Like, crap-tasticly crappy. And she wants to do her part to make sure other kids don't suffer the same. 2) she's creating something that will 'live' without her when she graduates to count for her Girl Scout Gold Award project.
For those of you that don't know, the GS Gold Award is the highest level you can achieve in Girl Scouting (comparable to the Eagle Scout award for Boy Scouting). Devon has been a girl scout since she was a Daisy her kindergarten year, and continued with a troop through middle school, then went it alone as a "Juliette" Girl Scout through high school. Just remaining in girl scouting all 13 years is amazing enough, but to cap it off with a Gold Award--pretty incredible!
So if you have a minute, can you check out her blog here? Maybe you have a child starting middle school this year? This is a GREAT resource to allay his/her fears. Maybe your child had a good or bad middle school experience they'd like to share? Devon's blog allows for people to write in and contribute their stories!
Here's the link to her blog:
And here's the video she made to achieve her Silver Award in Girl Scouting--the video that can also be found on her blog!
Thanks for allowing my moment of Momma Pride!
Happily My Ever After,
