Every other Thursday we have our Girl Scout meetings. We had a great meeting tonight. It was relatively calm. Some meetings are pure chaos with 12 little 10 year olds. We just finished our cookie sales Thank the Good Lord!!! I am very lucky to have a Mom that takes care of all the cookie stuff. I have done it in the past and it is a big job.
The girls have chosen to spend their cookie earnings on a night at a Residence Inn. Our local hotel is smack dab in the middle of lots of restaurants, movie theatre, book store and shopping. We will get to swim, play tennis, go see a movie and eat out for lunch and dinner. The great thing is I don't have to drive for hours to get them there!!! LIKE THAT we will do some pampering while we are there too.
They are all growing up so fast. It seems like just yesterday they were little kindergarten Daisys in their little blue tunics. Now some are as tall as me and love to talk about boys! Hard to imagine that next year we will be starting our 7th year.
Girl Scouting will be 100 years old in 2012. They are looking for GS alumni. If you were ever a girl scout in any capacity and would be willing to send in some information you can send it to me at creech03 at cox dot net! They are asking for name, address, date of birth, what your position or age level you were in. If I get 6 names Coco gets a new patch! I promise not to send it to anyone but the Girl Scout Council!
If you have a neat story or craft idea that you did in scouting I would love to hear about it.
