Through the eyes of a box of Thin Mints

This week was a busy week with the delivery of our Girl Scout cookies. I am sure everyone wonders and really cares about how your cookies get into your hands, right? Maybe not...I care but I know I am a dork about the cookies. I "love" this time of year!!!! So if you care you can read on and see how I help to get the cookies where they need to go. :)

I started the day helping sort the whole neighborhoods cookies....1,154 cases!

I then loaded all 148 cases for my troop into the van and brought them home to sort.

After sorting the troop into piles

Happy 99th Birthday Girl Scouts!

Yesterday was the 99th birthday of Girl Scouts and my troop celebrated by visiting a local museum who has an exhibit on Scouting. It was a lot of fun and the girls really enjoyed seeing the way scouting has changed over the years. I was not so excited when I saw my Brownie uniform on display in a museum in the display of "old" uniforms!!!!
