Proud Scout Mom

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! 😉

Hi, I am a blessed Mom of 3 little monkeys, 2 boys and 1 girl but my life has been full of little monkeys even before I became a Mom. I've worked in the veterinary field for about 20 years now and have taken care of many animals either in boarding, general medical and emergencies. I've been an emergency technician for the past 13 years and it has allowed me to have more one on one attention with my other little monkeys, my patients. Children and Animals have always been close to my heart and I love learning what I can to help them feel safe and secure and be happy and healthy. I have been with the love of my life for 16 years, he is a wonderful husband and father. My husband has a green thumb particularly favors tropical plants so I may chat about that from time to time. I enjoy scrap booking, themed birthday parties and kids crafts. I attend continuing education classes and conferences to keep up with the ever changing animal world. I am big on client education and making sure people are familiar with their pets needs. I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions in this monkey world of mine.
