The Bachelorette

Last night with nothing good on TV I found myself watching the Bachelorette. I've never been too into this show in the past and wasn't planning on really watching it, but I found myself glued to the screen. So tonight I am watching the next episode.

I don't have a favorite guy I'm just interested to see how this plays out.

What do you think? Are you a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan? Have you always been?

Planning ahead

After our recent Girl Scout award day, where the girls received the patches they had earned throughout the year, a parent(and future Brownie leader!) came to me with the concern that her daughter wanted to put her Daisy patches on her Brownie uniform. She refused to listen when her mom explained her new sash would hold badges she would earn the next year. I told her that when I was in girl scouts we made small bags to put our fun patches on.

I knew that project would be too difficult for my Daisys (they are 5 and 6) but I wanted to do something similar with them so their badges could move up with them, after all these patches should be something they are proud of.

Today I found bags similar to these in the dollar section at Target

I bought some in Daisy blue and I'm going to give them to my girls at the beginning of the next Girl Scout year. I am hoping to have their names embroidered on them! This way the girls will have an "official" bag to carry their scout stuff in or to bring on trips. They will also have a place to put their patches as they earn them.

So, what do you think?

Other things I'm planning for the Daisy's next year:

Our new journey book is about traveling and learning about new places. As the girls learn about other parts of the U.S. I want them to learn more about SC and the Columbia area as well. Be on the look out for places we can visit and free events that can be education for my girls. I would love to hear your suggestions.

I'm Back People

So after a very busy 9 months I'm back. I have absolutely LOVED my time as the president of FEA and I can't believe I will only host one more meeting. I've finished my junior year of college and will be graduating in less than 7 months. I'm currently unemployed, I'm done with classes (for a little while), and girl scouts is over...This leaves me with a lot of free time. Frankly I don't know what to do with it after such a busy year.

So I'm looking for a seasonal job and praying that the financial aid office is going to get my student loan fixed by Summer II. In june I will be taking two final classes before my student teaching. I will take Family Dynamics, an early childhood class that will be 25 girls packed in a small room. I am really glad that Amanda and Leslie will also be in this class. I think I've been spoiled by my Cohort. The second class I have registered for is The understanding and appreication of Theater. This should be a fairly easy class that requires me to attend plays and other performances. So far only 6 people have registered for this class and I am one of only two girls. This is going to be a different experience.

Ok, I'm going to head to bed. No big plans for tomorrow except possibly going to play bingo. Hopefully it won't be another 9 months before my next post :)
