thanks Robin, you just gave me another reason to join.
I want Chynna to enjoy, to have social fun, to learn, good foundation for she needs that
and I never know when she will be tooken from me, so I just want her to have good memories as long as she is with me, to have something to look back on.

She can't wait till the next meeting, she has asked me several times, it is time again
she loves crafts, and doing things, and she sees that I keep them, hang them up at times, and they don't get torn up... which makes her enjoy it that much more

I know time will tell... we go one step at time with her GS expeiences...
plus I can be a overgrown kid with her. LOL

I don't mean to make it sound like Cub Scouts don't send TY notes or do their own planning... it is just something that tends to start earlier with Brownies, they don't wait till they're older to be as involved in the planning.

May I suggest getting Chynna a Girl Scout calendar and marking the day of her meeting on it, as well as her other activities? Then she will know exactly what day it is!

well last Tue we paid our money to join, but I am a little disappointed to find out we are not required to wear uniforms.. to me this is what makes the group a unity.. am I'm wrong here?

I am going to try to go this week or next depending on doctor appointments and when I have the time to get to FW to the scout office to get her a book where she can start working in it.

and to learn the motto, law, and things she suppose to learn..

Rani, I first got to learn when things are goign to be before I can even mark it on a calender.
but Chynna reminded me it was meeting day, she doesn't want to miss it.
She would be happy if we could met once a week. LOL, but in the older groups when she gets there it will be. Only time will tell I guess.

Barbar, so you all don't wear vests or sashes? What do they put their patches on?

If you can't get the book check out the Girl Scout sites and they have the oath and pledge on them. Look for the book on Ebay or ask freecycle, cheapcyle for inexpensive ones. Lots of times leaders will pass them on to others once their girls are older and out of that book.

Robin, thanks for the tip, I don't know why I didnt think of that, for I do belong to a freecycle group.. and got a few things for her before.. Like this one lady gave away a unused bubble bath set that she received for christmas..
will check it out. again thanks.
I'm not sure what they are going to put thier patches on, I'm wondering about myself
I guess time will tell, so far, I don't see the girls having any..
she was suppose to been a leader of some of the girls last yr..
I'm trying to wait and to be nice before I jump to far, for I know how I could be. LOL

This is amazing--seems like there is a thread at FC for everything I'm interested in! A friend of mine and I just became troop co-leaders for a group of Junior Girl Scouts, and I'm looking for advice on getting started...and here it is, a thread on the very same topic at FC! Lots of good info here! How wonderful! I'll be digging through some of the other threads looking for activity ideas, etc., but was thrilled to see the info here!

well alot of things are making sense from the beginning when I first joined up with Gscouts.
the main leader was not keeping that good of records.
I found out that this group hasn't earned badges in over a yr.

It was time to sign back up for the group and I had to pay the register over again as the leader never turned in my check for me and Chynna.
I've signed up to be Co-leader instead of a helper.
alot of things will be changing now in the troop which will be good.
Next week is Twilight Day Camp...
off we go..

Chris, welcome to the threads. Yes, there is a lot of information we can share with one another.

Barbar, glad to see that you are a co-leader now. Our first leader lost some of our registrations, mine included. But we got it all worked out.

We will be going to camp this month. I had not planned on volunteering the whole week but now am. They called and said that council now required all volunteers to be trained to Level II of which I am. They did not have enough volunteers with the training and were going to have to tell another unit they could not come if I and another lady did not come for the entire week. It created some problems, as I had a retreat for a Board I am on and ds transportation issues. Those got worked out, so I am going. Of course the unit that would not have been able to go included girls from my troop.

looking for help with girl scouts

I have been a girl scout co-leader for one year and now I am a full leader. I was part of a very large troop and the troop split. I now have half of the girls as they enter the next level (Juniors). I have been told there is a million things my girls could do however I dont know how to go about doing it. One of the things I would like to would like to work onthis year is getting involved in a post card exchange with other groups. Can anyone help me with this. Tonya

Tonya, I am a co-leader of a group of girls that just bridged over to Juniors in June. This will be our fourth year together.

There is a large postcard exchange that starts taking names in Sept./Oct. This is worldwide and if for Thinking Day. Our troop did it last year and it was amazing.

If you are just wanting to do it on a smaller scale I know our troop would be willing to do it. If we keep all the girls once school starts we have 15.
