I love them also. My husband and I spend time together. This morning talking about God and our future. Talking about volunteering together to host a tent in our churches vacation bible school. Since we have not been able to have children we have been talking about ways in which we can help other children. Because that is important to us.

You are positively the most amazing Junior Girl Scouts leader (den mother? or is that Cub Scouts??) EVER. That is SO cool!


I met you today at Joann Fabrics. It has been so fun to read through your blog. I can't believe how many things we have in common. I have loved looking though all your wonderful projects! I homeschool my kids, but you do a lot of the same things with your children. I noticed that you are going to see Beth Moore in May...I am also signed up. So glad that we exchanged cards. I look forward to looking for your books.



My scouts love to do hair wrap with embroidery floss and pony beads! Excellent group activity! You'll need some of those little tight rubber bands to anchor the floss and end the wrap. Have fun! Janine


Brownie & Girl Scout camping sounds a lot more fun that Boy Scout camping. We camp outside. In tents. No matter what the weather. The only things that stop us are blizzards and tornados. We get very wet and muddy and cold. Hmmm...I wonder if I could convince the boys that sewing in a cabin would be a good idea. Yeah, probably not.
