from the "SAHM wanting to use DC" thread.....


I know that hehmommy's post was an April Fool's joke, but....I'm at the point that all of my friends/acquaintances bar one have at least two children now.

Yes,


I like to take advantage of the events the older troops put on for the little ones. I think it is great experience for them too. All this can go towards community service credit when they are in HS.

That cost is the same as our over night camp for 6 days. But my girls both love it, so they are both going again. We are in Alaska so we don't have anything comparable to a Breakfast with the dolphins. That would be quite cool. I do like that we do many different activities and they get to try out things that otherwise my kids probalby wouldn't do.

I agree about the young ladies who continue, the ones I have met are really outstanding and I hope my kids continue with it. I only went through 6th grade when I was a girl scout. I did find out recently that I can get a 10 year pin, since I've been a registered gs for 10 years total now. Our troop is working on the bronze award, it is a lot of work, and yes they are time consuming. Lots of badgework and things to do before you ever start on the project. We are just getting to the project part.

I only went through 6th grade too but that was because there was not a Cadet troop to move to. My mom was a scout through her Senior year in HS. She lived in Colorado. She always said that GS in Kansas was not as active as her experience in Colorado. Girl Scouts of the Nation's Capital is pretty intense. If my girls want to keep going this area is very active on all levels and not just Brownies and Juniors.
