Friday was our first Cadette Girl Scout meeting of the year and we had a wonderful minister and a wonderful firefighter come speak to the girls about their careers and what it was like to be women in careers that are rather male-dominated. My very deep fears about our tiny, ridiculously cluttered and often dirty house as the new meeting space are largely allayed. We have had to cancel three too-hastily scheduled sewing lessons because the Lone Star Girl was ill-ish twice and had tests coming at school and needed to study the other time. The Lone Star Girl found out that the theme of National History Day this year is Innovations and she wants to do her project on birth control. Don't think that's going to fly. She and Lone Star Pa volunteered at the Clean Economy Coalition fundraiser on Sunday night.
I had a Daisy Girl Scout troop parent planning meeting on Saturday morning and our first meeting is on 10-2. PJ Story time started up again last night and the Lone Star Baby and I had fun. This evening was her first soccer practice. Lone Star Pa is coaching again and it looks like everyone is going to have fun. I love being at the field in the evening as a remedy for the cooped-upness of my busy schooldays. Their team chose "Volcanoes" for a name since their uniforms are red and white this season. Very cute! I am sad that I will miss their first game on Saturday morning but I have to go to a training all day to be be the Daisy leader. We have reached the season of needing to be several places at once and I am not very good at being peaceful about when I have to miss things. Still, I am happy about how many fun things are in store with them!
