What have you done lately?

I have received a few emails lately asking if I'm still doing Girl Scouts and just checking in to see if I'm okay. That's what I love about Girl Scouts. No matter where we are from or if we've ever met, we are sisters. I have met so many wonderful friends through Girl Scouts. It really is my "smile" spot in my life.

Yes! I'm still around. Just very busy with a Junior troop that isn't always a bed of roses. We have some "drama" with a Bronze project right now that I've really been avoiding, to be honest. I have had to think about how to work it out and deal with it for a while now. I'm still not sure the best route and I don't think there really is one. There is only the path you choose to take and you hope for the best.

Yes! I'm okay. This is a very busy time of year with cookies, events, and troop activities. So, I'm trying to manage my time and unfortunately the blog isn't the highest on the list. Then add in some health concerns with my Dad and you have the makings of one very tired person.

So... I will start back soon, I promise. In the meantime, I'll let you know what we've done this semester:
January - cancelled the cookie kick off and both troop meetings because of snow!!! BUT, we had a sleepover and did the Get Moving journey (yes, check that out.. i added that post a couple days ago!).

February - cookies... enough said... no, we had a cookie booth, cancelled a meeting for snow, tearfully said goodbye to a girl that I've had from the beginning because she moved to another state, and earned the Global Action and Cookie Activity pin

March - one meeting with drama Bronze discussion; 2nd cancelled because I was sick.

BUT... this is the plan for the rest of the year

  • Snooze at the Zoo this weekend
  • Social Butterfly
  • Inside Government
  • Independence?
  • Safety Award
  • Customer Insights
  • Junior Aide/Bridge to Cadette at an overnight event with our Service Unit (which I'm coordinating....)
The first semester this year, we earned:
  • First Aid
  • Gardener
  • Entertainment Technology
  • Musician
  • Product Designer
We don't do meetings during the Summer and to be honest... at this point in the year, I'm more than ready for a break. Next year... we'll be Cadettes... crazy!!!!!
