my dear friend Kayla is a brownie troop leader for her daughter and a wonderful bunch of girls. this fall, when my daughter turned 5, i registered her as a daisy girl scout. since there aren't any daisy troops near us, we signed up as an independent Juilette (i am her leader). Kayla has invited us to join in with her troop whenever there are appropriate meetings/special events and activities-we even get to wear her troop numerals on our uniform-- How cool is that!!! i love that my little girl and i have been 'adopted' into this amazing group of girls and their lovely families. last night, troop 355 held their Investiture and Rededication ceremony/award ceremony/Juliette Low's birthday party. it was our first ever 'official' girl scout event-and it was fantastic! here's tons of pics. Sweet Mimi's heart was overjoyed-she adored every minute of being with the older girls and starting her journey as a girl scout. i'm still beaming!! hope you're getting ready for an awesome weekend!!
ready for her first ever Girl Scout event!
