Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

This week is another scanned picture from my past. I’m guessing I was in the 4th grade here (1984?)


Would you believe that I’m still a Girl Scout? 🙂 I’m a life time member!

My senior year of High School I joined as an “individual” scout because no one else in my troop wanted to sign up. I had only a few things left to do to earn my Gold Award (highest award in GS’ing), so I figured “What the hell” and just did it.

Then took a few years “off” because I had no idea that I could still be a Girl Scout once I was out of school. When I moved to Massachusetts I ended up becoming a leader to a Brownie troop – a good friend’s daughter was in the troop, so she and I co-lead them until I had the twins. At that point, I became a life time member.

I figure I’ll get back into it when Maggie’s old enough to be a Daisy. I can’t wait! 🙂

  1. Oh I was also a girl scout my whole child hood. I also became an individual and received my gold award! I was so excited at the time. I wish I had a girl just for this reason – Girl Scouting was my life and it really was a great thing for me. I someday would love to get back involved in it. Good for you for becoming a lifetime member!

  2. What a great memory! I was never in Girl Scouts, but both my younger sisters were for a couple years. Hubby was a boyscout so I know he’ll push both kids to get involved in it which should be lots of fun!

  3. Aww, you were a cute girl scout! I had no idea you could be a lifetime member. That is so great that you’ll be able to share your love with girl scouts with your daughter in a few years.

  4. I was a girl scout. I love the activities we made.

    You were an adorable girl scout.

    Have a nice day.

  5. Tell me you still sell cookies….I’ll be your patron! 🙂

    You’re an adorable Girl Scout. 🙂

    Thanks so much for playing along with Way Back When-esday, Nancy!

  6. Believe it or not — I was a Girl Scout wa-a-a-y back when, and Grandma Marge was troop leader. And the beat goes on.

  7. That so fun! I never was a girl scout, and I kinda feel like I missed out!

  8. How cute! I am a life-time member as well 🙂
    Both of my daughters were scouts until last year….

  9. How great is that! And the photo. I just love these really way, way backs.
