I really wanted to celebrate today by eating Girl Scout Cookies, but the closest I could get was this grasshopper shake. It was delicious.
I was a Girl Scout for about 1/2 a second when I was growing up. Sometimes I wish I’d stuck with it, but back then there were still a lot of things they focused on that I just didn’t care about. Girly things. Also, there was a lot of support in my community for boy scouts, but the girl scouts were an after thought. I was only a kid, but I felt that.
It seems like things might be better now than 20 years ago. There is a lot more focus on leadership and teamwork, and less on…being a homemaker. That’s a valuable skill, but I think you can also use leadership and teamwork in the home. You can use that anywhere.
From the Girl Scout website:
The Girl Scout Mission:
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
If I ever had a daughter, I’d give her the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts. They’ve created an environment for girls to make friends, learn skills, and be part of something that teaches life lessons.
