I'm proud of my daughter!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My daughter is having the time of her life on a Girl Scout trip to London, England! Her troop has been together for 8-9 years, and they have all earned their bronze and silver awards. They have been planning on taking this trip to the Pax Lodge in London for 6 years, and actively earning money for over 2 years. In addition, they bridged to Senior Scouting over the Thames and have made a pact to earn their gold awards, not to quit scouting, and to become lifetime scouts at the end of high school. So there's my little brag.

That is awesome! I have been thinking about becoming a volunteer for the girl scouts around here. I was never involved but it sounds like a great experience!

for you and your daughter!

That's awesome!

I didnt make it very far in girl scouts ... the troop kept excluding me and another friend in everything, so we both dropped it after a month.

Wow! How cool!

We don't have "Girl Scouts" here, but I was in "Girl Guides" when I was in grade 6.

I remember begging my Mom to let me join. The uniforms were horridly expensive: sixty dollars back in 1974!! We really didn't have a lot of money but my Mom somehow managed to get me a uniform.

I think I lasted 2 months and then I didn't want to go anymore.

We never went anywhere or did anything. Every meeting was in the school gym where we sat around a plastic log fire singing stupid songs like "I'm a little tea cup" and acting out the words, and "Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly"

We camped in the gym! Actually it wasn't camping per se. We went to the gym and had to set up some pup tents on the gym floor and spent about 1/2 an hour in them before playing with a parachute.

It was the most stupid thing I've ever been part of.

Now I hear of Guides and Scouts going on real camping trips, trips out of the country, going on tours of factories etc. I wish my experience in Guides would have been more positive.

I wasn't fond of the "roughing it" part of scouting. Gotta have flush toilets and A/C.
