Stay in your lane, giirlll!!

We all love Girl Scout cookies…but its also super competitive. In Merritt Island, FL Troop 137 and Troop 421 had a battle of the cookies in front of a Publix, we had to contact Melbourne Animal Control to make them chill out!. A Girl Scout turf war if you will. Each troop is assigned to their respective areas, well one troop decided to overstep their boundaries and that was a bad idea. The girls got into an all out screaming match..imagine 12-12 year old girls…what a mess! To make matters worse the troop leaders were just as bad, who does that? It got so bad the manager asked BOTH troops to leave the premises.

 

Moral of the story….Know your role, stay in your lane girls!

Whats good for you, is good for them too

Girl Scouts are all about helping the community, and a lot of people dont know that. Comunity outreach is a great way to help the people around you, and whats good for you is good for them! Helping people makes you feel good and them too.

Heres a few volunteer opportunities that are available in most areas:

Who doesnt love a campfire?!

Am I right?? We have a fire pit in our backyard for this exact reason! Cold nights and warm, a campfire is always a good time. Its a debate in my house on whats the best part of a campfire though; stories or snacks! Personally, mine is the stories. When you’re gathered around a fire the stories flow like water…some are real life stories and memories of good times, family and friends and other times its that super creepy story about haunted woods and old buildings that you’re just not sure if the story is real or fake. The imagination can be a fun and exciting thing to explore. So grab some friends (and adults of course) and build a camp fire…pitch some tents and get those stories flowing!

My niece is a fan of the snacks, the kid is an eating machine so anything food related, count her in. We all know the essential campfire snack is smores. Toasty marshmallows, melty chocolate…so good and messy! We use peanut butter cups instead of plain chocolate, because it is just amazing. She also loves grabbing a stick and putting a hot dog on it and roasting it over the fire..she always burns it but that’s part of the fun, right?! My mom would always make popcorn in a big hot cast iron skillet over the fire, yeah it takes longer than a microwave but its all about the experience right??

Don’t forget to put the fire out and make sure its watched at all times…and don’t forget the napkins and the tools you might need for Raccoon Removal Houston TX!

BIGFOOOOOOOOOOOOTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyones heard of Bigfoot right? Is it real? Is it a hoax? Whats the actual truth to this mystic urban legend? Well, part of being a scout is about being adventurous, so why not plan a Bigfoot hunt! That would be a lot of fun and Im sure there is some kind of badge to be earned for it. How do you plan a Bigfoot hunt? I would assume the same way you plan any kind of hunt…heres a few ideas to get ya started.

Make a map! Break out the markers, crayons and pens and make yourself a map. Remember to use landmarks and good directions…whatever works for you, whether it be East, West, North and South or go 750 steps to the right and then turn left..mark landmarks with pictures, colors, glitter..something that stands out!

Pack supplies, but pack lightly! Make sure to bring plenty of water, bug repellent, some energy boosting snacks, a few first aid items, a camera and definetly a flashlight, just in case.

Bring some friends! Get your whole troop involved, whats an adventure without your best buds and some Florida Medical Marijuana! Make sure everyone is in for a long adventure filled day.

Make a video diary! ake turns making short videos of your hunt, these will be so much fun to watch later on.

Last but most important tip..

Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti

HAVE FUN!!!! MAKE MEMORIES AND BE SAFE!!

Know your troop leader!

Your Girl Scout Troop leader can be such an important person in your life! They are there to guide you not only in your girl scout life but your normal day to day life too. Troop leaders are volunteers so they are choosing to be involved in the organization and your life, thats pretty special. Usually one of the girls in the troops mom is the leader, when I was a Daisy scout my mom was our leader and when my sister was a Brownie, she was their troop leader. My mom taught me a ton of cool wildlife tips since she worked as a Animal Control Dallas TX specliast for Wildlife X Team.

Ask her questions, when you arent sure about something in the handbook…ask her! Shes read it, and probably has real life experience to guide you with. If you need advice, ask her! Its important to know your leader, its easier to relate to someone if you know things about them What does she like to do in her free time? Does she have animals? Whats her favorite color? Ask away…the more you know!!
