“I organized a reusable bag swap. One lady on the chapter wanted to join our group but we could not get a hold of her after the first contact so she didn't trade with us.

3 of us had a bag exchange that we made specific for the swap. One gave us bags she had. 4 sisters took part in the swap.”

“It was hard to make a journal. I live with my daughter and her family and she has 3 girls they don't watch much tv, we are too busy. But my son in law has his father living here also and he watches several hours a day but in his room so the rest of us are not watching it.

They have show restrictions and any adult that is watching a show has to explain to the girls if they ask about a comment on the tv. No one wants to do that, so very little adult tv.”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Quilting Merit Badge!

“I made my very first quilt! It's a rag quilt, so one of the easier patterns to do, but it still took some trial and error for sure! I had some of my strips twisted so I had to pull it all out and resew but I finally got it done!

I am very pleased with how it turned out! I ended up giving it to a new member of our church who is expecting a little girl in Feb, #7 for her! (that's not me in the picture!)”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a Beginner Level Farmgirl Grammar Merit Badge!

“It has been a little bit more of a struggle than I anticipated, but I have went 1 month without using slang/abbreviations or any type of text-message type lingo. I had no idea how much I actually type/text like that until I had to try not to!

As far as picking two words from the dictionary, I actually changed it up a little and picked two words from my daily Bible reading to research. It was a little more difficult given that I read a KJV Bible, but it was super interesting!

I was disappointed to see how much I speak in "text message" but I am extremely grateful for this merit badge for it brought the issue to my attention so I can change it!”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a Beginner Level Know Your Roots Merit Badge!

“My grandfather is 87 years old. He is my oldest living relative on my father's side. I have grown up with him as my father figure but I never really took the time to ask him about our family history until the last few years. I was able to get enough information to submit to a friend who helped track down my family tree. This inspired me to look at the other side of my family as well.

After roughly 5 total hours of "interviewing" my grandfather, Robert Tommey on my father's side, and about 7 hours of interviewing my great grandmother Sindy Wright on my mother's side, I was able to trace my family back to the 1400's. (But that is left for the intermediate merit badge explanation!)”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Intermediate Level Know Your Roots Merit Badge!

“It was a little difficult to get started, but once I did, I was able to find information somewhat easily. I had help from a local historical who had access to ancestry.com and a few other search engines that were a lot more in-depth than what I had access to. Between emails and phone calls we were able to find out so much about my family!

I found out that I'm only a 3rd generation "Tommey". My last name use to be Tomakatura, Blackfoot Indian name. Which is awesome! I was only able to track this side of my family back to the 1800's. Native Americans did not keep very detailed written records, but it was neat to see!

Then on my mother's side, I was able to trace my roots back to medieval England 1400's! I am related to a Lord & Lady Wright. Oh, and my Great X10 Uncle is George Washington, the President! This is especially cool because I am a National Guard Soldier, so being related to America's "First Patriot" is really neat!”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Bee Good to Your Mother Earth Merit Badge!

“I only have one picture of my garden this year as it was not as good as last year's garden. I moved to town this year and the soil in town is significantly different than the soil in the country. I had to bring in top soil. I think the previous owners used some type of chemical for their grass, my plants struggled.

I researched organic pest control but ended up not needing any type of pest control (aside from a fence to keep the varmints out). My tomatoes ended up doing well, but everything else only gave one or two vegetables each.

I am very disappoint in my garden this year. I'm hoping with more prep work this winter I'd be able to have a better garden next year!”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Make it Easy for earning a Beginner, Intermediate & Expert Level Make it Easy Merit Badge!

“I had my latest daughter in Jan of this year. I am in the National Guard so I am required to get back down to weight and physical fitness in 180 days.



Starting in March, it came time to start losing the weight. My family and I started eating organic farm raised eggs (which we usually do, but we were more strict about it), drinking raw milk when I was able to, and cooking with coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. I ran every day and was able to lose weight quickly!

To lose more weight for my National Guard requirements I increased my workout. This consisted of running every day, eating a light breakfast (which was difficult since I wasn't use to eating breakfast at all), a small lunch and snack during the day, and a healthier dinner for the whole family.

In Sept of this year I ran my first 5K. I didn't finish last, so I am very happy about that!! I have lost a total of 60lbs since the beginning of my journey!

I am extremely happy about the results!”

Stephanie Myers (smyers154, #6672) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning a Beginner Level Going Green Merit Badge!

“I have learned how to make my own laundry soaps, all purpose cleaner, and bathroom cleaner. I have created a binder that includes all my recipes along with all my other ideas on how to go green such as recycling and trying to become a trash free family.

It was hard at first trying to get my family on board but after about two weeks they were all in.”

“I have made my own soaps, bath bombs (which were so much fun using). hand lotions. Made laundry soap, all purpose cleaner, and bathroom cleaner. I have even learned how to use orange and lemon peels to make a really good smelling cleaner.

I had some hiccups along the way but it went very well in the end. I have really enjoyed this learning experience.”

Stephanie Myers (smyers154, #6672) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning an Expert Level Going Green Merit Badge!

“To finish off the going green badge I found a spot out back by my chicken coop for a clothes line (I like it there because it reminds me every day how easy it is to go outside and get the laundry hung). We do not have carpets, however we did paint the kids bathroom and used natural paint. I donated my time to helping my neighbor to go green and learn how to make products.

It went well, no major issues. Getting easier and easier always finding new ways to reuse and make things homemade.”

“We had a leaky toilet had no idea ... was wondering why the water bill increased. We made a list as a family ways we can cut back on using so much water throughout the day.

This one was great because I know that after seeing the slow leak with one of our toilets i know we will save money.”

Sherrilyn Askew (Sherri, #1350) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning an Intermediate Level Pay it Forward Merit Badge!

“For my 50th birthday, I asked everyone to donate at least 1 non-perishable item to their local food bank for me. Our total donation count was in excess of 120 items.

Marking the halfway point on a century is quite an accomplishment in and of itself. When I stopped to think of what I need and what I want, I realized that there really isn't anything in either of those categories that anyone could get me. That got me to thinking even more about giving rather then getting for my birthday. Since my birthday is always after Thanksgiving, and the food banks usually have a large outlay just before Thanksgiving, I wanted to have donations for my birthday to happen after Thanksgiving so that we could begin to replenish the stock of the food banks. Several of my adult friends gave, but it was the kids (my Girl Scouts) who really turned out. This was a good lesson for all of us in charity at any age and for any reason.”
