Daisies have some fun with beads!

This last week we had a “free” meeting, meaning there was no petal or Journey work planned on our calendar. We like to keep a few dates “open” when we make our master calendar, in case something comes up…a meeting takes longer than anticipated, we miss a meeting because of a snow-day, etc. But, if we get to the date and didn’t need to use it for anything else we just have a FUN PATCH activity day. So, we did just that by working on a bead craft. The girls all made a bead bracelet, not only is it something pretty for them to wear but it also has meaning. Each column of beads corresponds to a petal on their uniform, and each is a color to symbolize a line in the Girl Scout Law! A great way to learn/remember! The pretty daisy in the middle…well, that’s pretty self explanatory 🙂

Also, we had a visit from “Flat Juliette” (like Flat Stanley, if you are familiar) from a Daisy Troop in Las Cruces, New Mexico. So, we learned a little about their state and answered their questionnaire. We also took a photo of our girls with “Juliette” before sending her on her way to her next destination.

2214’s Got Talent

Our troop is made up of students all from the same Catholic School and this week was Catholic School’s Week. The week is full of many fun events for the kids, including the annual Talent Show.

This year, about 85% of our troop participated in the talent show in one act or another. We had some beautiful piano solos and duets, and a few wonderful dances including a ballet solo. But, new and special this year, Co-Leader C. coordinated with the teacher in charge of the talent show to have a “Girl Scout Troop” act as the grand finale for the entire talent show. And boy-o-boy it did not disappoint.

The act was a skit-dance, with an ANTI-BULLYING theme, done to Katy Perry’s “Roar”. There was a part for anyone interested in participating:
DAISIES got to dance around, “floating like butterflies”.
BROWNIES got to take care of the bullies,
and JUNIORS got to ROAR!!

We are SOOOO proud of our girls! They continue to regularly amaze us!

Special thanks to the girls who volunteered to participate, Co-Leader C. and Holy Family Catholic School for ALWAYS supporting and accommodating our troop!

Katy Perry – Roar

    I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
    Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
    So I sat quietly, agreed politely
    I guess that I forgot I had a choice
    I let you push me past the breaking point
    I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

    You held me down, but I got up
    Already brushing off the dust
    You hear my voice, your hear that sound
    Like thunder, gonna shake your ground
    You held me down, but I got up
    Get ready cause I’ve had enough
    I see it all, I see it now

    [Chorus]
    I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, dancing through the fire
    Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR
    Louder, louder than a lion
    Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    You’re gonna hear me roar
