Hello Everyone. I have missed you all. I'm not sure if I posted it here but I have relocated from Ohio to Oklahoma. I missed the Postcard Exchange last year but I'm glad to see that I'm in time for it this year. I just signed up and am waiting for my e-mail. When I get it I would love to exchange cards with anyone who is willing. My daughter will be so excited to do this. I'm not sure exactly how many girls that I will have in my troop this year. We are having our recruitment this coming Saturday.

I really missed all of you while I was gone. I "fell of the wagon" again and I finally found the wagon again so I climbed back on and I'm gonna try again.

I'll let you know when I get my e-mail.

I'm in Central NY. I sent you a PM with other info.

Gabrielle, would you like to swap with me also? I'm not as exotic as South Africa, but I am still a spark buddy!!!

Hey Kris where are you from?. I also checked the list and there seems to be a boys group listed from South Africa, so drop them a line if you like. Send me a sparkmail so I can include you on my list, you too Gabrielle

Hi Gabrielle
you can set up as many exchanges as you like or can afford. South Africa is very popular so I already have trades with about 20 US states, canada, England, Scotland, Australia, Singapore.
I love the Postcard Exchange. Where are you from? I am only doing one trade per state so if you would like to exchange please let me know where you are from
Have a sparktacular day

I signed up for the Post Card Exchange and have already got a response from a troop in England and Texas. I am really excited and can't wait until my girls get to write out there postcards. Do you just get postcards from your city?

So you suppose you could add me to your list??? Mostly I've chosen to swap with kindergarteners but it sure would be fun to swap with a Sparker!!!

Let me know how to find you for a formal request if you'd like!!!

Hey Kris
I haven't really been onto the lists because I get so many requests being from South Africa, I know there were a few Boys units last year
Good Luck

On Saturday, I went to our hall to meet some Young Leaders from England who were visiting. There were 17 girls and 4 leaders and they have been doing service projects in South Africa. Well I was chatting to one of the Guiders and she asked what my surname was. I told her and she was so excited, we exchanged a postcard with her Brownies last year. It was great to meet her and hear how excited the Brownies were when they got our card.
So if you are still thinking about joining just do it, great fun and a good eduaction for the girls or boys in some cases

This really looks interesting. I will mention it to my Service Unit (08/18) and see if there are any objections.

I want to get to a healthy weight and stay there forever. I don't have to make huge changes all at once, just small ones consistently.

I'm waiting to put it before the whole Pack (I'm a Cub Leader) before I sign up. But you know, I may forward it to my DD leader...she'd probably dig it!

Hi Everyone
Can't believe it is time again for the postcard exchange. For those who don't know about the exchange, you register and then set up trades with other units to exchange a postcard with them for Thinking Day. Last year we had so much fun and this is a great way to encourage the girls to think about Guiding in other countries.
So join NOW! Log onto www.mythinkingday.com/ and at the top right corner click on "sign up now". Have fun. The exchange opens in September but registration is already open.
