Girl scouts go ice skating

Me and my two favorite girl scouts.
McKenzie and all the Brownies.
Dulce, McKenzie and Cali

Kenzie trying a few tricks while on the ice. Amazingly she didn't fall.
Me and all 11 of my girls ranging from 2nd grade up to the 7th.

So I have been McKenzie's girl scout leader since she was in 1st grade. She has been in it since Kindergarten however. I have had my share of frustrations and my share of fun with the girls over the years. The troop keeps losing and adding girls. I have had 4 of the girls for 3 yrs and the rest have just been added within the last year. Cali joined my troop last year and has been having a ton of fun. she is especially happy to have a whole group of girls who are her age.

This was our first big activity of this girl scout year. We got to go ice skating. This is the 3rd time I have taken my girls ice skating. Needless to say this is one of the favorite activities because they keep wanting to do it. Over half the girls that were with me on this day had never actually been on ice skates before so needless to say I was a bit nervous about someone breaking their ankle or something. I am very happy to report that while quite a few of the girls fell a few times not no one was seriously hurt. They all had a blast and are already planning another trip.

I love being able to be part of my girls lives in this way.
