***The line up of candles. Campfire has a very long tradition of ceremonial candles that are individually lite and extinguished throughout the ceremony each representing a special meaning. A few being the candle of work, health and love.
Patiently waiting for the ceremony to begin. I was really in awe at how well all out kids did. They were very patient and respectful. (despite a few arguments and a little rock throwing)
Walking around the fire (safely) for their ceremony of moving up.
All our kids were in Little Stars, ages preschool or 3-5.
They graduated up to Starflight, Kindergarten-2nd grade, now they will get their traditional vest! Hooray! Great job kiddos!
The "STAR" in Starflight has very special meaning:
"Service To Another Rewards"

Great job sweetie!!!!
And here my phone ruined a BEAUTIFUL picture when you enlarge it and Jessi forgot her camera :(
Here is Evie with her mommy (Jessi) after she walked over the bridge and moved up to Starflight....proud mommy!
Jessi was also the host/speaker for the event, she did a wonderful job!
Jessi was given a few pins for special recognition for the service she puts in, volunteer hours, how long shes been a campfire member and all the great she does! She not only is the leader of our Little Stars...now Starflight group but she also co-leads another group of older girls. Yaaa....she's pretty awesome!
It was a wonderful ceremony filled with great company and recognizing our kids for doing a great job! I can speak for both Jessi and I when I say we can not wait to see what wonderful thinks we can do this coming year with our Starflight group!
