Good luck and have fun! I worked in our local Council for a year and the volunteers are amazing people. (I found working there not so much amazing, but that doesn't change the wonderful-ness of the volunteers!) It sounds like a really fun activity to do with your daughter.


The Daisy troop my daughter started are now Brownies and since my darling daughter is now going off to college I have inherited a Brownie Troop!

I just love Girl Scouts as an adult...welcome to the club!



I always wanted to be a girl scout when I was a kid. Part of it was the sense of belonging and part of it was because they did such groovy stuff.


I was really surprised recently when I discovered that GSA now no longer allows churches to have Girl Scout troops. My niece's school doesn't have one and her church can't offer one. Shame.


Good luck with your new role, and I love the pink top you knitted. It's really cute!


The Girl Scouts seem to have done better at keeping up with the times than the Boy Scouts have done. I was a leader for a Cadettes troop when my daughter was that age and I found GS to be on the cutting edge of understanding women's issues even then. To this family anyway, the Boy Scouts seemed to get caught in a time warp that we didn't feel comfortable with.

I wanted to share this quote with you, because it speaks of knitting in such an eloquent way! Do you recognize the author?

"Nothing contributes so much to tranquilizing the mind as a steady purpose - a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye."

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley



This is off the topic of Daisy scouts (my girls started as Juniors,) but I thought of you when I saw this.


I am a Rainbow leader in the GirlGuides in the UK. We have 15 girls age 5-7. I have been a leader for a year and love every week. In 2008 we are celebrating the 21st birthday of Rainbows. I was a Brownie and a Guide. my older daughter was a brownie and guide, and my youngest was a Rainbow and is now a Brownie.
What is your uniform like? Our Rainbows wear a purple tabbard over their school uniform, but many of the rainbow groups wear the new red trousers and a t-shirt.


You will love it! My daughter started a Daisy Troop last year and I has her 'adult' and since she is now off in college I have inherited the troop. Scouts is the best thing in the world!

How is it going being a Daisy leader?


Hi - I know this is an old posting but I was wondering if you could please let me know where you got that adorable Girl Scout Daisy patch of the 5 girls. Thanks!
