This is Edie’s third year to be involved in American Heritage Girls. She started when she was six. AHG is an organization similar to Girl Scouts in that the girls earn badges and go to regular troop meetings.
My girl has always loved earning some badges, but lately, she’s been out of control. She’s got badges on the brain. Every time I turn around she is asking either Ken or me to explain weird stuff like the basic components of a computer and how it works (for the Computer Fun badge) or if I could arrange for her to have a tour of our local library (the Book Adventurer badge).
This past week, she earned her Cinematography badge (definitely one for Ken to be involved with and not me). One of the final requirements for this badge was for her to make a 30-second video about why she loves AHG. She wrote the script, picked out the background music, learned how to use a teleprompter, and got her first taste of video editing.
The only thing left to do now is to show her video to her troop, but I thought you guys might enjoy seeing the finished product as well.
