Being a Girl Scout Troop Leader can be a lot of work. But, it sure can be a lot of fun too!

I've only been a Troop Leader for about 4 months and we have done so many things.

We have done three community service projects. We handed out water at 9-11 Run for the Hero's 5K, made happy socks for the cats at a rescue place and collected cans of food for the poor.

We made rootbeer floats, caramel apples and apple crisp..

We went to a Science Festival, Camp Scherman, Boo at the Zoo, Wild Animal Park and walked in a parade at the Angle Game.

We made several crafts that include cards, journals and Thanksgiving decorations.

In the next few weeks we will be helping to decorate floats for the Rose Parade that is on New Years Day, going to donate over 100 lbs of pasta, cases of sauce and lots of bread for a restaurant that makes dinner every night for over 100 Motel Kids.

We are going to go serve the dinner to the Motel Kids and hand out stuffed animals and books to all of them.

We are going to go Christmas caroling at the Senior Retirement Home and hand out reindeer that are made out of candy canes to the residents.

Then we will be going to see the Nutcracker Ballet and making Christmas gifts for the parents, having a Christmas party and a movie night without any parents.

My only wish is that the girls are having as much fun as I am and that they will one day look back on these days with fond memories. I know I will.
