Girls! Vote for New Badge Designs until Feb 17th

It's important to get kids out in nature.  Here's a great resource I found the other day.  It recommends getting kids out in the wild at least once a year in an effort to bring childhood back!

Troop camping is an important way that Girl Scouting accomplishes this!

Until this Friday, Girl Scouts can vote for the design of the new troop camping badges.  As a GS leader I'm so looking forward to having new camping badges for my troop next year.  Here's the 411, as we used to say...(does 411 even work any more?)  Click here to go to the survey!

Happy Birthday Laura Ingalls Wilder

At my troop meeting on Sunday, I mentioned to the girls that today is the 150th birthday of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the "Little House..." series of books.  I was so glad that many of them had read the books and liked them.  Blogger Laura Ingalls Gunn (yes, she's a relative) has been celebrating her distinguished relative's birthday with some lovely posts.  Here's a pretty image from today's.  If you are interested, you can read about her party it at http://www.decortoadore.net/2017/02/country-party-happy-150th-birthday.html
