We started our Lake Hills Brownies this week and have nine girls--the perfect size for a Brownies troop. The Lake Hills Presbyterian Church down our street has been incredibly trusting and generous about allowing us to use their facility as a meeting space; in addition to classrooms, it has a big field and picnic pavilion that will be great for Girl Scouts events. This past week we learned about the Girl Scout promise and law. Next week, we'll make sit-upons and s'mores. Wihoo!
Although it's a bit of work for my co-leader and me, Brownies is a good antidote to the stress and conflict of my job. First-, second-, and third-graders are really fun to know. I'm excited for our year ahead.
