My oldest daughter went out on her first time on a overnight hike with het scoutinggroup "Arkhyttan Baptistscouts".
She left yesterday afternoon, hauling a very full backpack. But first I kind of ceremoniously hung her brandnew scoutscarf around her neck and slid in the scrafslide/tie I made for her. It's a piece of reddeerbone, on of those we founf, when we were out last autumn. I found a section that should fit, sawed it off, cleaned and sanded it and insribed het initials, using a scrimshaw-technique. Meaning carving the bone and filling the carve with ink.

|The tieslide. It has a point/tip on the front top, making slideing it off very easy.|
This picture is taken after the hike, hence the scarf being a bit gritty....

But when we did go to pick her up, I noticed she had changed.... She had grown. Little girls grow tall and make dads proud!!
