We made it!! 12 little Brownies, and 2 ladies trying to keep up we met our goal this year!
This year was our first year as Brownies (2nd grade) and 11 of the 12 have been together since Daisies. Last year the girls were planning what they wanted to do as Brownies, and began looking over the badges offered. To our surprise, well not really, the girls said they wanted to earn every single badge…that makes 39 badges in 2 years. So to divide and conquer we thought we would do 20 & 19 the following year…the girls didn’t care what order we went, just as long as they earned them ALL!
We began in September 2013, and now the first week of May we have earned 20 badges (including 2 of the Journeys) plus a pin! WHOOOHOO. I am truly proud of our girls, there are defiantly some badges that aren’t as exciting but they made it through. I am also thankful for all of our families, without them bringing the girls to all our meetings and events, helping sell cookies, make crafts, drive on field trips, we wouldn’t be as successful as we are. We truly are blessed with such a wonderful program.
I will try and post some of the badges we did and what we did to earn them, because I know as a working mom & troop leader some badges are just not my forte and are harder for me to come up with activities.
With that we as a troop are looking forward – er scratch that, the girls in the troop, are looking forward to going to the local indoor water park this weekend to celebrate such a wonderful year!
