Last week I finally had my very first Brownie Girl Scout meeting with my troop. I lost four girls-two to other conflicting activities and two others because they just did not want to come. I saw the girls at the end of the school day and told them they can change their minds and come back whenever they want to.

Fortunately, I did get a new girl, so now my troop totals nine.
I chronicled what I did at my meeting in this blog post. To sum it up, we welcomed our new scout and talked about the differences between Daisies and Brownies. I asked them what kinds of trips they wanted to take and what kinds of Try-Its they wanted to do. The girls were very impressed by my older daughter’s vest. Back then, you were a Brownie for three years-first, second, and third grade. My big one had an entire back of fun patches and we had to squeeze in all of the Try-It triangles.
We did a simple craft which took less time that I thought. The girls are really growing up! I found a word search online for the girls to work on together.
We closed as usual and they are now looking forward to our next meeting and their very first Try-It!
