Forever a Girl Scout


My Promise:


On my honor,
I will try
To serve God
and my country
To help people at all times
And to live by the
Girl Scout Law







The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting a troop of Brownies holding their first cookie sale outside at the grocery store. They were shy and eager, not quite sure about attracting attention. Some had been visited by the toothfairy but they all were adorable; so proud of working to earn their first trip to camp.
These days I see so many young people flashing their hand signals so I thought I would share mine in the picture above. That's my hand and my Brownie pin.

  3. Fellow girl scout here! I was even the co-leader of my daughter's troop for a couple of years. Even if I was allergic to the cookies I'd still have to buy them--I remember how cold and scared and eager I was when selling cookies!

  6. I was a brownie and girl guide for over ten years in Canada and have nothing but fond memories. So much so that as soon as my daughter became old enough she joined Brownies. Now I'm assistant leader and love every minute of it. I love "my girls", they are funny, smart and self-assured. And I'm doing my best to help them stay that way!!

    Hurray for the Girl Scouts! Once a Scout, always a Scout. that's what I tell the little girls selling cookies in front of the market. Is it my loyalty to scouting that makes me buy box after box, or is it the thin mints? Yummmmm....

  13. Just another one checking in. This is probably the worst thing about the internet. Growing attached to people whom we've never met, and then wondering how it was we ever got about, without them in our daily lives. Looking forward to your next post....Jacey
