To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
I was a Girl Scout through the 6th grade until I deemed it too un-cool. I’m pretty sure that it wouldn’t have made me any geekier than I already was. Girl Scouting was a great experience. While I hated selling cookies (Can you believe we used to go door to door, all alone?), I did learn to sew and had the chance to camp and hike, two things I never would have experienced with my family.
My 6th grader’s troop bridged from Juniors to Cadettes this month. Since we’re so close to San Francisco, part of the ceremony involved walking across the Golden Gate Bridge.
Were you a Girl Scout? Or maybe a Camp Fire Girl?
