7 in a family + 1 bad stomach bug+ 1 bathroom= A Huge Flippin' Nightmare.
So during all this craziness around here and also being a Girl Scout leader, I was running our cookie sale. I just turned in my order today. 1500 boxes on our inital order but we'll sell more after they come in. Last year total we sold 1728. This is a picture of PART of my garage last year. It was insane!!This is great news for our girls! I have some exciting ideas and hopefully they will agree. I have to plan before telling though. You can not tell a bunch of kids something and not follow through, but since they don't read here..... here's one thing that I'd like to do with them. :) Horseback riding. :) I did open my mouth when Alex was around when I was talking to Daddy about this and she had a smile going from ear to ear. I know the other girls would love this and I've got a place to take them however here's the issue. Dave went there to do a job once, when he arrived and was talking to the owner's wife (most likely) she was talking about "your kind" (meaning Mexican) even referring that they all look the same. Did not fly well with him and well since he is Mexican and Italian. I guess you could say she sounded a little racist. This happened a few years back but anyways he'd rather not do business with this place. What would you suggest in this situation??
I gave them paper at our last meeting and asked them to write things they thought would be fun to do with their friends with their cookie money but they listed things we've done before. Skating, swimming, cooking, oh and their favorite thing last year I did with them....taking them to the mall shopping for Webkinz. Oh they want to do that one again soooo badly. lol So imagine if you were a Daisy, Brownie, Junior Girl Scout leader what would you do with a troop of 15 sweet little girls? Also would you do business at the ranch even though hubby says no way?
