About Me

Check out my other blogs: Sow What Journey http://sarahsowwhat.tumblr.com www.100actsofgreen.org As a homeschooling Girl Scout I am often doing my Journey's as part of my school work. Which means that I have to plan and implement them myself. I have been asked to share this with others. My first blog was with the Senior Sow What Journey. Since I plan to earn 5 other Journeys -- this will be the site for all information.

Outdoor Journey with STEM Connections

During my Advocacy Journey - I did research on what older girls really wanted in outdoor girl scout programming and then wrote a Journey with that focus.

I would love to see more councils use this Journey.  It is designed to be led by the girls (not the adults) and their is only ONE guide.

300 Badges and More!

Did you know my sister and I have a blog that we use during cookie season?

Since someone asked me today how many vintage/retro badges I have -- I thought I would share the evolution of my khaki vest as well :) (and the hair).

This is also my 100th post on this blog!
2012 -- the goal is 100 IP's during the 100th anniversary.  I did it. -- the first 2 rows you see on the front of the vest are the same badges my mother earned in 1983-1987.
2013 - some of my favorite fun patches on the back along with all the council own IP's

2014 - new vest - everything re-sewn thanks to my grandma -- the only NON badge on the vest is the African Jamboree patch from 2012 -- the total number is about 141 including the current version and the 21 - 1934 badges for my Golden Eaglet.

Family Photos - Girl Scout style

So the last three years - my mother, sister and I have had our annual Girl Scout photos taken.  It has been fun.

We started it during the 100th anniversary - including my grandmother.  I am so lucky to be a fourth generation scout -- my great grandmother was a Canadian Girl Guide in the 1920's.
