Meeting ten was a fun one because we got to celebrate Juliette Gordon Low's birthday! We have about thirteen new girls so majority of them had never heard of her. I haven't really taken much time with her history. We've always had so many girls and they're still pretty young. Maybe next year we'll get more into it.

Step 1 - Sing Everywhere
We all got in a circle and did the Hokey Pokey! That dance is so tiring! All the girls were short of breath, and so was I. I talked to the girls about how singing songs is a girl scout tradition and asked them to think of other times we've sang together. The most memorable was our camp last year with older scouts.
Step 2 - Celebrate JGL's Birthday
Each year the girls are given a cupcake with a candle. We sing happy birthday and blow out candles.
Step 3 - Share Sisterhood
For this step the girls all worked together on a mural. We have over twenty girls so it was a very full and colorful mural! This also went toward our Painter Legacy badge.
Step 4 - Leave a Place Better Than You Found It.
All the girls pitched in and cleaned up our meeting spot. They always do a good job with this. We had a lot of trash during this meeting so it was a bit more work.
Step 5 - Enjoy Girl Scout Traditions
We finally got around to doing a Friendship Circle!!! I've wanted to do one since the start of the year but we've always ran out of time.
No photos for this meeting. I am the worst at remembering!
