On my honor
I will try
to serve God and my country,
to help people at all times,
and to live by the Girl Scout Law.

my mom swearing me in as a Brownie, aka me, saying the Girl Scout Promise for the first time

I will do my best to be
Honest and fair
Friendly and helpful
Considerate and caring
Courageous and strong
Responsible for what I say and do
And to respect myself and others
Respect authority
Use resources wisely
Make the world a better place
And be a sister to ever Girl Scout.

Felt’s tricky to cut, y’all.

My husband made a cookie-sales goal wager with our Cadettes. They won. At our campout, they got to shear his braid and shave his beard.
…and there goes the beard.
