Cookies ?

Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

I've been approved as a Girl Scout Volunteer and will be a co-leader of Beezus' troop.

I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout as a child.  I loved my Brownie uniform and have a photo somewhere.  I still have my Brownie and Girl Scout pins.  I hope that Beezus (and Ramona next year) enjoy their scouting years as much as I did.

For me, scouting is going to give us the opportunity to do activities and outings in a structured way, along with another avenue for my girls character development.  This particular troop is made up of girls from 2 different towns and 4 different schools, and I like that too.

I'm really looking forward to this.

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! I am dying ot do GIrl Scouts. The one time I called the DC office they did not call me back. I've not followed up because when the hell will we fit that in? But I SOOO want to do it. My mom was my leader, my grandmother was a district leader, it was important to me growing up. I'm only holding back now, really, because maybe doing Daisies is too young and we'll jsut start with Brownies. Or at least that's my excuse right now.

I'd love Rachel and Natalie to be girl. I was one and so were my sister and brother. We were sea scouts and had so much fun. Ny dad used to come camping with us and was the cook and a good one too.
(miss you dad)

Is there such a thing as non-religious boy/girl scouts? I like the concept but I'd rather send my kids to a secular version.

I still don't understand why they didn't have you just join our troop. Weird. But I'm glad you found something! A. is really enjoying it!

I'll buy cookies from you.

By the way, I was a brownie. One of our early "assignments" was to do something nice for someone else and not take credit for it. I decided to make my mom brownies and leave them on the counter as a surprise. Too bad I was way too young to be cooking and swapped the sugar and salt quantities. I can still see my mom trying to choke down a bite dusted with about a pound of powdered sugar to make it taste slightly less bitter.

I did 4-H. Sewing, craft projects, farm animals, and county fairs - I forget that I really am from the sticks!
