Our Troop

The 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting also marked the first year for our troop. We are a Daisy troop in the Nation's Capital. The 21 girls in our troop this first year are a combination of Kindergartners and First graders.

When I called looking for troop information so my daughter could join Girl Scouting when she started kindergarten and found that there wasn't a troop at her school and if one was to form they would need a leader I volunteered before the sentence was even finished ... being a part of Girl Scouts was one of the greatest parts of my childhood and I wanted to make sure my daughter had the opportunity to embrace scouting like I did ...

And I must say ... it has been such an honor to be a troop leader this year ... I have enjoyed every moment of it and wish we could do even more together ... the group of girls and parents we have are so fantastic ... I catch myself looking around at this group of girls and thinking about how they will stay friends for years to come just like I am with girls from my troop ...

I am looking forward to being a troop leader for years to come ... it is all so much fun and not a single moment of it feels like work ... which for me means it is a sign it is something you are meant to do ...
