I have a Brownie!

Kinsey joined Girl Scouts in December and is now a Brownie. We joined a great group made up of Daisies, Brownies, and Junior Girl Scouts. Last month we took orders for cookies and have been delivering them this month. Kinsey ended up selling about 350 boxes! She was awarded a special star to wear on her vest (not in picture). Last weekend and for the next 2 weekends we are selling cookies at booths. Her troop has done really well with this.

Here is a picture of Kinsey helping me sort the cookies. We had a good system set up and she did really well. Thank goodness most of our deliveries were to big places like Daddy's work or Mama's work or LaLa's work. We only have one delivery left and it's to Grandma! We'll do that in person. Thanks to everyone who ordered.

This last picture is of Kinsey before her Girl Scout Thinking Day Event. Her group represented the country of Brazil. We read and looked at pictures of girls in Brazil. They wear brightly colored skirts and white shirts (the white leggings are because we live in cold NM). Kinsey also wore her Mardi Gras beads uncle Bill brought her back from New Orleans since Brazil celebrates Carnival (similar to Mardi Gras). I made the skirt in about an hour--thanks to my 4-H Club sewing teacher! Thanks Mama!

We are both loving the Girl Scout experience. In May Kinsey and I will attend Mom and Me camp at the Girl Scout camp at Mitre Peak, Tx. This is the camp that I refused to attend when I was a Girl Scout because I didn't want to be away from my Mama. I'm glad they have camp where your Mom can come now. I'm just not sure about sleeping in a sleeping bag and a!

Glad you did so well on the cookie sales. It sure brought back memories, but by 2. LOL Have fun. This is a good time in your life for both of you. I am glad you are finally getting to Girl Scout camp even though it is about 32 years later. Love Mama
