Girl Scouts

My Baby's a Daisy

So, my eldest started Girl Scouts. I am soooooo excited. I was a Girl Scout when I was, and I have so many good memories of going every week and being around my friends. I didn't do it for long but camp was a blast and I guess I really feel like it teaches good morals and great life skills.

Now, I know, maybe not as a daisy, but they are still learning about courage and honor and respect and honesty and, and, and... those are life skills too, right?!?

Anyway, I was so excited. We got to go to the Girl Scout store today to pick up her outfit so we can officially start selling cookies.  Unfortunately they were out of the vests (and don't try and talk her into a tunic, trust me, I tried).  So we ordered one and they will call us when its in but she said it wont be until the first week in Feb.  {sigh}

But we can start working on the girl scout law and such.  She will have to know this to earn her petals to be a daisy, then she can start earning the fun patches.  {squeal}

I really am so excited for her and her troop, and I can't say enough about what a great program the Girl Scouts really is.  And cheap too, (I was about to shell out $500 for dance lessons for a quarter, what!!!!!  I know, I know, thank goodness she decided she didn't love it.  If she would have loved it, it would have been a different scenario, but she didn't) Girl Scouts tuition only cost me $12 per year.  Now I did buy her uniform and her patches but total.......... like $35.  Then I decided she needed a book, another $22, but that was optional, and I still felt like it was a bargain!  {woot, woot!}

And her troop leader is fabulous, what can I say, I'm a sucker for the Girl Scouts.  If you have a chance, I strongly recommend getting your little one involved.  Truly, I think they will love it!
