I was lucky enough to be a co-leader for Maddy's Girl Scout Brownie troop this year. It has been a blast, but on reflection having just looked through some of the photos of the past year, I'm not entirely sure who told my girl she could grow up so quick, its just not fair on this Mama...
This is the most recent photo of my gal from last week - she had just earned 3 new badges!! and was proudly showing them off on her sash (a sash that is fast running out of room and we still have next year to fit on there yet)
They have done community service projcts for the homeless shelter (making birthday bags filled with cake mix, frosting, treats and birthday party items - for people to celebrate their birthday while in the shelter, an occassion usually overlooked)
Made a huuuuge gingerbread house, which was displayed at the museum
partied like it was 1999!
Met doctors, nurses and firemen, had field trips to the aquarium and around the fire station. Made snacks and treats, played games from around the world...and more! (and we still have the campout to come!)
It has been a wonderful Brownie year indeed and I can't wait to do it all again with them next year!
