I have to say that 2011 has not started off on the right foot for me. I struggle with so many things as I try to get everything done. As I took a step back during all of our snow days, I realized I wasn't the only parent in my group that felt this way. I say group, since our sister troops meet with us most of the time. Each parent that has contacted me has the desire to connect more with their girl. I find as a volunteer, parent, employee, wife, etc, that I don't have enough hours in the day to do all I want to accomplish. I find that everyone in my group feels that same way. So starting in April we are going to set aside one meeting a month to accomplish the Dove Foundation/Girl Scout's Uniquely Me program with their female mentor. As these girls are faced with more challenges at school each day, mothers'/grandmothers' wanting to find the time to connect with their young girls, and the girls wanting to be unique...this seems like the perfect way to accomplish it. We shall see how it goes, since the next meeting is the start of a new journey. Wish me luck!
