Girl Scouts rock!

Yesterday was our GS kickoff meeting - we had an ice cream social, and all the girls had a good time. Our Daisy troop has doubled in size, from five to ten, and this year I'm co-leading the troop (I'm also our Service Unit treasurer)! Yesterday's meeting included some Juniors and Cadettes, and the younger girls really enjoyed learning and interacting with the older girls.

Girl Scouts are an inclusive organization: they welcome all girls, regardless of ability, ethnicity, income level, or background. Later this year, I'll be working on a recruitment drive to reach out to families with girls with special needs. Sometime next year, I'll be training other leaders on how to welcome girls with disabilities into their troops. I think it's going to be a good year for scouting in our area.

Here's a picture of my Daisy. She's too cute!
