Welcome  :)  This page is a way to visually track and share my PEP Straw and Wood Level Badges and Badge Bits.  My Log of Badges and Bade Bits became too big and unwieldy as I completed my first straw level badge so I converted it to track only Sand Badges and BBs while making this page for higher-level Badges and BBs.  It is a work in progress!
