  • Take some time now for the girls to plan what they want to do and decide what role they will each play in executing the final celebration.
  • Suggest that the girls first brainstorm together exactly what they would like this final journey celebration to be. This will also be the time to set the date, time, and place and create a guest list, if needed.

Closing Ceremony: Thanking our Bodies

Looking Ahead to the Final Celebration
