So, I left home at 2:15 to get ready for my Girl Scout meeting which was from 3-4:30... I had 3 new girls and 6 returning ones today (and a few who were still at the last cross country practice that's on a Monday)... door wouldn't lock at end and I didn't have the allen wrench so I had to find someone and didn't get out til nearly 5... stopped on way home to sign up youngest for swim lessons.
After 10 minutes at home, I left again with my daughter for a Brownie troop's first meeting. Good thing we were leading it... the husband and wife team of leaders only had the 2nd grade daughter and 12 month old son there with the dad... and 5 other girls showed up (3 who wanted to be brownies, but in 3rd grade) and 2 who were just friends tagging along. The baby cried/fussed the entire time- dad tried to take care of paperwork and forms and pay attention to what we were doing. The little girls had fun. I gave the dad a pep talk on the way out and he seemed still excited about being leader even if his daughter would be the only 2nd grader.
So I took my daughter home so she could do homework and dinner (8pm) and gave my youngest a kiss and went to my son's boy scout meeting which was most of the way over. Some good things discussed there too.
3 Scout meetings in one night- 2 of which I was basically leading (even though my older girls are fairly independent)- is just too much for me! It's good that tomorrow is a non-cub scout week for our Tuesday Cub Scouts!
