Tomorrow I go for all day Girl Scout training. I'm nervous! This fall, I will lead a troop of homeschooled 4th and 5th grade girls. I've posted before about Jeannie's Brownie leader and my problems with her. Well, there came two straws that broke the camel's back and pushed me to start my own troop. First, Jeannie missed a meeting and the leader refused to tell me what she needed to make up. At that meeting, an activity was planned. Of course, I knew nothing about it. The leader finally told me about it- when she was short on help for it!! I decided right then and there this was Jeannie's last year in that troop. Second, the leader announced she was leaving and asked if any of us moms would take over. She didn't know I already had a meeting scheduled with the GS rep to get info on becoming a leader. I emailed her the next morning and told her of my meeting and that I was interested. She emails back and tells me no thanks, that the co-leader's daughter is taking over. Even as she leaves, she sticks it to me. I hope I never see her again in life after the meetings end. I hope to get alot from this training tomorrow. My head overflows with all the stuff I've read in the leader guide!
