My American Heritage Girl


 I posted about two and half years ago about how intimidated I was to be taking Trina to her first ever American Heritage Girls meeting.

I'm not a girl mom.  I'm a boy mom.  But I have this beautiful little girl, and I am her mother.  So as intimidating as I find a room full of females, well, I sucked it up and we went.

Trina has loved it.

And now, as she is nearing the end of third grade, my baby girl is going for her Sacagawea Award.  There is a fair amount of effort required to earn this award, and she is really close.

One requirement is to create a presentation about what she likes about AHG, and put it up in a public place like her church or school.  Well, school isn't very public.  And there aren't that many people at church who would truly be interested (and those who are will find me on Facebook too).

So, she created a video, to post publicly at her mama's work.  You know, my blog.  And my Facebook page.

We'd love to hear your comments :)

Enjoy.

Great job, Trina! Very informative about what you enjoy about AHG, and my 9 year old daughter enjoyed seeing all the video footage with me.

Fantastic job, Trina!! I loved seeing and hearing about all the wonderful things you do with Heritage Girls.

(Debra, I'm a boy mom with one girl too, so I know what a challenge it is to switch gears! LOL Good job!!)

What a fun video! My 12 yo and I watched it together and really enjoyed your enthusiasm and knowledge of the AHG program! Great job!

Brenda Prince said...

What a wonderful video. Great job Trina. Eventually, I would love to get my own little girl an American Heritage (once she's old enough to take care of it) so your video was very informative for me :)

Lisa M said...

I have never heard of Heritage Girls! It sounds really cool, thanks for sharing.

Great job, Trina! My girls would have enjoyed that when they were younger.

Tried to post on YouTube but it was being strange so commenting here.

I love her excitement and enthusiasm. Since I also have a daughter who has 4 big brothers I'm sure she would have enjoyed AHG too. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful! I learned a lot about AHG. Thank you for sharing :).

Beth Bray said...

Trina, I can tell you've been working very hard by all the patches on your vest. They didn't have AHG when I was younger and I only have a son so I might never have learned about the program if you hadn't shared. Thank you.

Great job Trina!

I have 4 girls, and I'm still kind of a boy mom. ;) I love that AHG is a nice alternative to GS. One of my girls did GS for a few years, but I'm not happy with their relationship with PP, so that's not something I'm comfortable with now.

That was GREAT, Trina! I loved that you sung the pledge!

Awesome!

Lori Hooten said...

Fantastic job Trina. I have been thinking a lot about getting my girls involved in AHG and trying to find a group. Your video definitely makes me want to look around even more. Thank you for sharing your sweet thoughts and love of your family, friends, and AHG troop. Great job!
