Welcome to my blog! I started it when I was a new Girl Scout leader and needed some kind of organized "to-do" list. I decided the best way to keep things organized was to start a blog. So here it is! My oldest troop has since bridged up to Juniors, and I've taken on a Daisy troop as well, so I will continue updating with new Juniors information and additional Daisy stuff too. My hope is to continue to update with every level as my troops advance. But we'll see.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope it's helpful!

Coming Soon: Getting Started with JUNIORS!

So apparently I'm just going to keep on blogging throughout this Girl Scout journey (ha! See what I did there? Journey. Tee hee).

Stay tuned for how to get started with Girl Scout Juniors! First up will be prepping/planning your first meeting, then some camping preparation tips, and diving right in to earning our first three badges!

I will also be updating some Daisy posts along the way, as I have to different troops, and have tweaked some things the second time around with my younger troop.

And have had some requests for things like communicating with parents, and recruiting parent volunteers. I will do my best to address all the questions and suggestions. Keep 'em coming!

Things have been crazy since my last entry, but I'm back in full swing with both troops.

Check back soon for updates!

And thank you to everyone who's taken the time to read my blog. :) It's now had over 500,000 views since I started it, which is mind boggling and really cool.

So keep on searching, and hopefully I can offer up some more helpful ideas for my fellow leaders, and point you to other online inspirations as well, because it's the leaders who make this happen. And we are all in this together!

  1. Thank you for offering up so much help and ideas for new leaders. I found your blog last year when I started my Daisy troop and it really was a godsend to the initial craziness. I now recommend it to other new leaders. I will be going through all your Brownie posts as my girls will be bridging at the end of this year. You really provide a great site for other leaders.
