Thankful Challenge: Thankful for my Brownies
This is my third year being the troop leader for Little Red's Girl Scout Troop. While they often test my patience and my own values, I am truly thankful for the impact these 14 girls have on my everyday life. They challenge me creatively, mentally, and emotionally, in the best possible ways.
At yesterday's field trip to the Denver Art Museum, I was inspired by their creativity, and willingness to learn about art and themselves. We spent the afternoon painting, creating African, Western, and Oceanic art. They continually shock me with their insight about community, and world issues. Children at this age are smarter than they are given credit for. I am lucky to have the influence of 14 second graders in my life.
