Eleanor is a lucky kid — she managed to land herself in a Girl Scout troop that actually does stuff. (My troops somehow never did anything interesting.)
This year all the troops in her service unit were able to march together in the Tour de Terrace parade. This is part of a days-long celebration of town pride held by Mountlake Terrace, which is just northeast of where we live.
Brian and the other children were able to go watch her march (I had a baby shower to attend). Being in a parade is something everyone should have a chance to do.
Best of all, the Seafair Pirates were there! Arrrr!
