Welcome to the group. I have a 9th grade troop and have been their leader since 1st grade. My daughter always sells 1000 boxes, most door to door . . . so my advice would be to get some comfortable walking shoes:) Seriously, have you got a cookie mom? I always have another mom lead the cookie effort. It's my 'mini-vacation' time.

One day at a time . . .

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

Hi, my name is Colleen. I am a 35 year old happily married mother of two beautiful children. My son is two, and my daughter is 7 and a Daisy Girl Scout. I was never a scout as a girl, but have become my daughter's troop leader, pretty much by default. When we moved to a new city in fall 2009, we wanted to find activities for our daughter besides just going to school and coming home. My husband looked around online and decided to sign her up for Girl Scouts. The Daisy troop they placed her in had 8-10 girls and 2 leaders. However, I soon discovered that it was more like a glorified play date. Each meeting went like this: Color, do a craft, have a snack, go home. Unless they went outside to play on the equipment. Now don't get me wrong, these are all wonderful things for 6-and-7-year olds to do. However, I thought Scouting was supposed to be more. So of course, the teacher in me couldn't just leave well enough alone, and now I am the troop leader. I am happy to have taught the girls the Promise and taken them through all 10 parts of the Girl Scout Law, so now they have all the parts of their Daisy Patch. We have the rest of this year and I'd like to work through one of the Journey books and maybe actually do a field trip! This is my first Cookie Sale as a leader instead of just a parent, so I'm nervous & excited. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
