Doing our best
When I was growing up clubs and activities I participated in mainly consisted of things I could sign up for in school. I knew girls that were involved in Girl Scouts but never really had the opportunity or interest in joining. I actually didn’t get involved in clubs until I was in High School. My cousin Clara was like a big sister to me. She showed me that there was more than just going through the motions in life.Clara introduced me to FFA the first year of High School. I learned so much about agriculture, animal husbandry, team work, dedication and leadership.
I am now a Mom of 3 and it is now my turn to show my kids what is out in the world for them. This week we attending our first meeting of Cub Scouts and then Girl Scouts. I was very impressed with what the Troop leaders were wanting the kids to take away from Scouting.
We officially have a Cub Scout Bear and a Girl Scout Daisy in the Lane home. Let the adventure begin!! We have a busy couple months ahead of us but it looks like loads of fun. This is very new to me and I was a bit nervous at first but the Troop leaders made this an easy decision. The dedication they have and the structure they will provide I welcome with open arms.
My kids are extremely excited about getting started and I can see the motivation wheels starting to turn in their little heads. I strongly believe they are going to grow and gain so much being involved with our community and forming a bond with kids their age. I am excited and proud that they wanted to do this. I’m a SCOUT MOM! 😉
