Okay so call me crazy.  It was about 30degrees out today and we had high winds so the wind chill put the temp at about 20 degrees or lower.  We had a Girl Scout Cookie Booth Sale Today at a 4 way intersection with no wind barrier.  I only had a half shift so I was only there 4 hours.  The corner mart/ gas station was kind enough to allow us all the free hot cocoa we could drink.  (Thank you our to heroes)  They also allowed us to go inside and thaw out periodically.   We could not have the sale inside due to liability issues with their insurance.  I had about 8 girls covering 2 hour shifts from 8 am to 4 pm.  It was a very successful sale but I have to say I think they felt pity on us for standing in the cold and the girls were so cute!  The second shift had the cookie costumes to wear and they stood at the corner and danced to keep warm.  There are definitely some tough cookies in our troop!

It's been a while

As you can guess I have been very busy with the kids and life in general.  I have limited my computer time severely.  I have even stopped playing my online games (I loved those). 

I am still leading the troop but I have also joined the gold award committee.  They are a wonderful bunch of ladies.  We help 9th grader to 12th grade age girls earn the highest award in Girl Scouting, the Gold Award.

I have helped one finish already and have 8 that I am mentoring and they are still working on their project.  I love working with these girls.  They have some great ways to change the world for the better.
