Girl Scouts. I will admit, I was a little nervous about doing Girl Scouts in the beginning of the year. I had no idea how often they would meet or how involved we would need to be. But, it’s turned out to be a really fabulous thing for the girls. Our troop meets about once a month at the library. Meetings last an hour, and parents don’t need to stay. The girls have learned lessons and values that center around being a good friend and being a good person. They’ve done some fun field trips and they really loved selling cookies. Like really loved it.
Last weekend was our final meeting and the bridging ceremony from being a Daisy to a Brownie. While I’m 90% sure they’ll participate in Girl Scouts again next year, we were all fairly ready to be done. A few patches are falling off and I didn’t place everything correctly so the flower is a little misshapen. Oops. I will try harder next year.
I’m thinking about being the cookie person next year. I realize I may be crazy to do it, but I don’t have time to be a troop leader (or even co-troop leader), but I feel like my organizational skills would serve me well as the cookie person. Plus, I’d like to participate a little more than I do. We shall see.
