Ella’s Beaver Investiture

She’s been waiting all week for the Beaver investiture ceremony all week and it didn’t disappoint! She left Beavers last night very excited and kept saying, I can’t believe I’m an actual Beaver now ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t get permission to post photos of the leader or other Beavers so I’m respecting their privacy.

She was given the Beaver teddy to look after for the week and when we got home she took a selfie with him!

And of course, she had to take him to school with her today ๐Ÿ™‚

She absolutely loves Beavers and I’m so pleased because she was disappointed that she didn’t enjoy Rainbows like she thought she was going too.

Now we have to buy her a jumper and necker because I bought the t-shirt trying to be clever, thinking she wouldn’t need the jumper in summer but it turns out the uniform is the jumper and is needed to sew the badges on to!
She had to borrow Aiden’s necker for her investiture and she’ll have to keep borrowing it until we can get her one ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congratulations to your Beaver. I think that it is such a great organisation and fab that girls are part of the couting movement. they do bring such a balance to it.
