Well, well, well -- who knew that at my advanced age there would be anything left to discover about myself. Who knew that I would be feeling challenged and energized in this time when most people are slowing down. Who knew I would be --
A girl scout again.
Yes, I am now officially a Girl Scout co-leader. I will be helping Bean's troop out until one of the mothers comes forward to take on the job.
How do I feel about this? Great! I may be there a few weeks or the whole year but whatever my role is I feel good about it. I like being around these youngsters -- they are all so smart and clever and eager. I have had the pleasure of being included in some of the activities this year and it is fun. I am proud of these girls and they have done so well and it will be a pleasure and privilege to see them mature and grow this next year.
Plus, I like crafting. Camping -- well, we will talk about that later.
So, now I get to buy a shirt! Yay! I was looking for my old Girl Scout pins and my mothers pin (she was our Brownie leader) but all have gone missing. I suspect they are pinned to my Brownie uniform which is buried deep in a trunk and will probably remain there because it is just too much of a hassle to get to the trunk. So, a shirt and a pin. I am excited.
Yeah, a Girl Scout -- I guess scouting is for life, isn't it?
