Busy little Bee.....hive

In my last post I eluded to some upcoming achievements...well, here is a big one:
Shay received her Young Womanhood Recognition Award this past Sunday. She had to be quite a dedicated young woman to earn her award in just 2 years. Here are just a few of the things she did to earn this award...
*Read the Book of Mormon twice! Once for the value Faith and once for the Virtue value.
*volunteered 40 hours last summer as a junior lifeguard-learning 1st aid and CPR skills
*took a few sewing lessons and completed a pair of pajama bottoms along with 2 quillows(a blanket that folds into a pillow)
*watched all sessions of conference, including the YW general broadcast-and took notes on them.
*taught younger siblings a skill-Kinsey learned to make crocheted hats and Derek learned made a quillow
Shay's next goal is to earn the Bee. This can be done by helping another girl earn her award OR by reading the Book of Mormon again. She already asked for a new Personal Progress book and is contemplating earning a second award.
We're proud of you sis!!

I say earn it again!!! As well as the honor bee! In order to earn the honor bee, you have to give 40 hours of service (some of those hours should include helping other YW) AND then reading the B of M again. (Basically, what you said, except it's AND instead of OR.)

Either way, so proud of you Shay...that is an amazing accomplishment and you will only learn and grow from doing it all over again. Kind of like reading the B of M get something different out of it each time you do it. Don't stop achieving...keep working hard! You're awesome!
