Photo Friday: The Countdown Begins

Happy cows in Switzerland.

Now that it's December, the countdown to Switzerland begins.  My daughter and the other seven girls in her Girl Scout troop have been planning and fundraising and saving for three years to travel to Switzerland.  Why Switzerland?  Because one of only four Girl Scout international program centers is in the Alps in the town of Adelboden, Switzerland, and when they were in 7th grade they saw a picture of that cute little chalet in the snow and decided they wanted to visit.  They are now in 10th grade, and we leave on December 25th.  I am so proud of them.

  1. What a most wonderful opportunity! Such a fun countdown to lead to a magical place.

    Happy seeing (and counting down to) beautiful!

  2. I don't know why, but I just got a huge smile on my face looking at your picture. Don't know why, I just really like it.
    Congrats to your daughters troop for accomplishing their goal. I hope they have a ton of fun.

  3. What an amazing trip for them - they should be very proud of themselves for working hard to make it happen! And you are an amazing Mom to be chaperoning 8 teenage girls in Switzerland. Have a wonderful time!!

  4. Congrats! Hope you guys have safe travels and a wonderful time.
