Girl Scouts

As most of you know, I signed Addy up for girl scouts & I volunteered to be a co-troop leader! We are part of a new Daisy troop with 10 girls that are all in Kindergarten at Addy's school. One girl is even in the same class as Addy.

Here's our troop at our first meeting.
Last Sunday, the 14th, our troop participated in the Yellow Rose Service Unit Girl Scout Investiture ceremony. (Which is basically a welcome to girl scouts ceremony.) The girls stood together as a troop, repeated the girl scout pledge & then we 'vested' them.

Troop 3124 after they got their vests & pins. Don't they look absolutley precious!
This was the first year that the service unit held this ceremony & I think it went great!
Last week, Addy BOOed one of her sister girl scouts! She took a Halloween treat (cookies & a stuffed animal) & secretly put it on the doorstep of one of the other girls in the troop. Then they should BOO someone else in the troop & so on & so forth.  And now we're just waiting for Addy to be BOOed. (She'll actually be the last one to be BOOed. I know, because I assigned who each girl should BOO so that it goes in a circle & everyone gets a turn. Addy started it out & so she'll end it too.)
The gift had a stuffed black cat in the bag that she had picked out. I thought for sure she would want to keep the cat, but when I told her she couldn't keep it because it was a gift, she said ok & let me put it in the bag. So I was so proud of her when she put the gift on the doorstep & left it there.
Wednesday we have our next troop meeting where we'll work on learning the girl scout promise & make promise bead bracelets. Should be lots of fun!
