Oh yeah — stacks of cookie boxes in the playroom the year I was cookie mom! My daughter was crazy for selling those cookies! This year they have a new one — mango — that I want to try…. I’ll have to find a Girl Scout table somewhere!
Stacia, I am so pleased to know that you are a Girl Scout mother. In 2nd grade a Brownie troop formed here–1957?–and those girls graduated together as Senior Scouts in 1967. In December of last year 10 of us had lunch together, as we have done for the past 38 years, and acted just like those 7year old Brownies. Those friendships are like the song we learned long ago. “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, and the other gold.”
Love girl scout cookies! I think I ordered 8 boxes…yikes.
Also just read your oscar speech post. I loooove the poem…and imagining her little hands putting it all together. I had an English teacher in high school that really encouraged my writing and creativity. I still cherish her!
