Girl Scouts

This summer we’ve been talking about Girl Scouts and Chad & I made the joint decision to sign Maria up. So I went to a meeting on Wednesday night to do just that.  Now I don’t know much about the Girl Scouts, except that they sell cookies. (I was a 4-H girl).  So when they said they couldn’t form a troop unless they had at least 1 leader, and would I be willing to co-lead, I said… “maybe” which 30 minutes later had me filling out a form!  Yikes!  I did do that.

But here’s what I’m thinking now… I probably have about 8 years left with Maria until she thinks I’m crazy and annoying and doesn’t want to hang out with me.  This gives me time to hang out with her AND have insight into something she hopefully likes AND have influence on the activities she and her troop do.

So any of you out there that are involved in Girl Scouts or grew up in Girl Scouts, let me know, so I can ask you questions. Help this Troop Leader out!

One thought on “Girl Scouts

  1. And you are volunteering in your community! Good job, Jane!! With your counselor experience, you will be excellent. Sometimes I come up with ideas and think it would be great for Girl Scouts, so I will let you know when a thought comes. With Pinterest, you’ll have lots of inspiration. And by looking through the patches. You have all the right skills…sewing, cooking, camping, singing, skits, holiday fun. A few things that I remember the most were: Halloween baking, touring a jewelery making area at uw-stout and making (pounding) a ring out of metal, going to Noah’s Ark, frosting cookies. I’ll let you know more.
