Adventure In Paper-ville

Today my Mom woke me up and excitedly said I was in the local paper. Then she told me it was for Girl Scouts. On my way to school I stopped at my nearby Sheetz and grabbed a copy!
Here's the article clip. It's about by Girl Scout Gold Award and what I'd done to earn it. 
The Gold Award for Girl Scouts is the highest award that a girl can obtain. There are three of them: bronze, silver, and gold. 
I earned my bronze award first,
and then Silver award. Each award had a set of criteria and were separate projects. 

I ran the Tween book club during the summer, two times a week. I'm still running it, but it's once a month now. I love books, so trying to pass on the fun of reading was the goal of the club. We discussed the books and did a related craft to the book and overall, it was a lot of fun. The club was a mix of books, from The Outsiders to Percy Jackson to Moon Over Manifest. There was one horse focused book on the list. Misty of Chincoteague.  Today was a great day! :)
Cool copy I found with a rough-ish cover. It was a large paperback too. 


  1. Congratulations!! As a former Girl Scout mama myself, I know what an honor it is to win those awards, especially the gold one! Good for you!!

  2. Yay! Awesome job! And I have to agree. Spreading the love of reading is one of the best things you can do. I'm not familiar with "Moon Over Manifest", but "Percy Jackson" and "The Outsiders" were some of my absolute favorites (Grrr can't type in italics).

    1. Thanks! And yes, The Outsiders is one of my absolute favorites :)
      Moon Over Manifest is about a girl in 1936 that is sent to stay in a town for the summer by her father. It kind of is a mystery. It's a good read.
