This fall, my daughter Emma will be in the Girl Scouts. She's following in Mom's footsteps - I was a Brownie, Junior, and Cadet. Completely lost interest in the scouts in high school when BOYS became appealing
. So, were you a Girl Scout? If you're a guy, were you a Boy Scout? What were the field trips you remember the most?
I am loving this time in our lives! We do our "girlie girl" things (paint our fingers and toes, go to ballets, excursions to the library). Some say it will change when (I say IF) I start dating again, but I don't believe this - blood is thicker than water and I love my baby girl! Of course, I know when she starts dating,
I'll be spinning yarn in a corner somewhere or playing bingo.

I was a brownie and a girl scout. The field trip I remember most was the trip to McDonald's to see how they make hamburgers & fries! That was a big deal as a 7-year old. I also remember going to summer camp for a week and sleeping in a teepee. We also rode horses and that was way cool! As an adult I was an assistant Brownie leader for my daughter's troop.
