Because I don't have enough going on..I am volunteering to be a Daisy Girl Scout Leader! I was a Girl Scout from the time I was in first grade until I graduated high school. Although once I got older, I didn't call it Girl Scouts, but rather my "organization." My friend Holly and I have always talked about being leaders when our girls, Gracie and Jackie, were old enough. Well guess what? That time has come and now here we are.
Presenting Daisy Girl Scout Troop 686!
I know that we are starting late in the year but because of lack of communication on both ends, we are starting now. We missed the cookie sales for this year, but next year....look out! Besides all that matters now is this excited girl to put on her Daisy smock and start earning her petals, which are the patches for Daisies.
I made my troop these little bags that they can bring with them to troop meetings. We weren't sure how many girls were coming and I only made 12. Well, we have 14 little kindegartners in our troop! I'll have to make 2 more!
We started the meeting of course with The Pledge of Allegiance. We then made a petal for our troop sign in which the girls all decorated and wrote their names on a petal.
Then we did some get-to-know-you activities. One was tracing a buddy and then drawing ourselves as Daisy Girl Scouts and talking about our similarities and differences.
Good thing we are holding our meetings at school and have the space to do this!
We then played another game called Daisy-to-Daisy. The girls had fun and got to change partners so that they got to make new friends.
They are such little darlings. Totally different than the 3rd graders I teach.
But we did it! We started our own Daisy Troop like we said we would. One thing to cross off the bucket list. I am totally excited and look forward to working with these girls. I already have a Pinterest board full of ideas!
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.
(that's a St. Mary's thing)
