Last night my daughter (fourth from left) was inducted into Girl Scout Troop 45481 with eight of her newest girl friends! I am so very proud of her. This now makes us a Scouting family. Elliot, myself, Rachel and my wife. My wife was a Bluebird and Campfire Girl.
I told Rachel last night as I went off to a Pack outing to the Winterhawks Hockey game. The Pack and Girl Scouts need to coordinate this stuff..;) I was sad to miss it since it is a huge thing. Think Bobcats for Cub Scouts. I told Rachel that I would not miss the next big Award Event.
Rachel as a little sister has been afflicted with the syndrome of going to “stinky boy stuff” meetings. That is what she calls Cub scouts. Last year I bought her a Daisy hoodie that she wears a lot.
The cool thing is that in her troop, there are four girls including her, that have brothers in our Pack. I know that there are several other boys whose sisters are in Girl Scouts at different levels.
I know that Rachel will have a long and happy life within Girl Scouts.
