This winter it seems like our main activity at home has revolved around the selling, sorting and distributing of girl scout cookies. Bitty sold 300 boxes and I was very proud of her but I have to say, the Girl Scout organization doesn't really start handing out the big prizes until you sell 500 boxes, and some people get up into the 1000 - 2000 box zone. That sounded very impressive until I tried to help Bitty sell, sort and deliver only 300 boxes. Holy Cow! My living room was covered in boxes and I felt like we spent weeks driving around with cookies in the trunk trying to get them out to all the generous purchasers of cookies. It was a ton of work. For me. Bitty seemed to enjoy herself immensely. Even still, I couldn't help but be proud of her.
|Look at all the Thin Mints.....|
We earned her a spot at two different camps this summer plus free entrance into a cookie party hosted by the Girl Scout Headquarters. Part of me hopes that they have more there than just girl scout cookies to eat after all the work we went to to earn entrance. And part of me....just wants more girl scout cookies and would be perfectly happy if the party were nothing more than piles of Samoas, Thin Mints and Tag-a-Longs heaped upon tables for our enjoyment.
I will report back after I find out.
