  1. I loved this episode!!! It helped me with deciding to do AHG again this year. Great podcast!!! How is everyone doing? I am good. I am going camping on friday!!!😁

  2. I was an American Heritage Girl for several years and my favorite activity to do with my troop was to go to the local nursing home at Christmas time and sing Christmas songs. It is so cool to find out that Patti Garibay listens to my favorite audio series!

      1. i used to think ballet wasn’t cool and you do little dances. Its not. its really fun and it helps u stay healthy. I hv really weak ankles but now they r so strong I am going on point soon.

        1. I have a friend who dances on point! It’s so cool! I wish I was more graceful, but my body type is more suited for like racing and stuff. But I’ve always wanted to get really flexible because it would be so neat to be able to pull off hard things like the splits and stuff like that!

  3. @Blog Mods/anyone else who may know 🙂
    I was looking back at the 2016 podcasts and I couldn’t find all of the Wayback Wednesday podcasts. The only one I saw was the one with Sage & Erin Bolte, but I couldn’t find the one that featured Aria Curzon or the one with Natalie Babbitt. Just wondering if y’all will ever bring those back so we all can listen ’cause I love hearing the interviews with the discontinued characters! (possibly they were lost with the website update…?)
    Thank you for all you do keeping the comments section safe for us to enjoy!!!

    1. Thanks for letting us know @TexasGirl! Some of the older episodes didn’t successfully migrate to the new site. We believe we’ve fixed most of the issues and you should be able to find the ones you are looking for. Have a blessed day!

    1. I am hopefully going on point this february. I also do tap contemporary and some jazz and hip hop. I skipped a level for dance this year so I am one of the younger ones now I used to be one of the oldest.

    1. AHG is a Christian Girl Scout troop. I did it the first time they had one in my area and thought it was so cool. If you find one near you, I would so recommend it!

  4. Could ya’ll incorporate the Avery Awards into the club because I haven’t seen any promotion of the awards anywhere in the club except the podcast.

  5. HEADS UP!
    I’m leaving the Whitsend blog for the time. I’m really struggling with keeping up with writing and work and chatting on various websites and all sorts of other stuff, and I’m getting really stressed out for the first time in my life. So I’m really sorry, and I’d really like to stay, but I can’t. I might be back, but I’m taking a break. 🙂
