Cold Comfort

The kid went camping with her Girl Scout troop over the weekend. It was cold, in the 30’s overnight, but she says she was warm and snuggly. The 2 Kelty, 20+ sleeping bag burrito she climbed into each night probably helped.

We have struggled with the decision for her to be a GS for a couple of years now. I had bad experiences when my older daughter did GS and have struggled to shed them, in spite of the truth that our current leaders are wonderful, strong, amazing role models. In the end, the leader’s acceptance of our desire to be a part but just an honestly small part, of the troop pushed us over the edge.

Now my little girl is a Junior and gets to spend some focused, fun time with some other wonderful girls from our homeschooling community. It’s a journey that isn’t in the GS manuals, but one we are happy to be on just the same.
