For braving the energy of the eleven 4th graders in our Junior Girl Scout troop once a month (sometimes twice depending on if there’s another event to attend), I am thankful today for my fearless troop co-leader: Tina. She deals with my last-minute planning, brings snacks or supplies if I need her to, runs to the Girl Scout store in Cedar Rapids to buy patches and sometimes “participates” in the activities right along with the girls! She’s also survived a 12-hour Brownie Girl Scout troop with us to the American Girl store in Chicago last summer and a 6-hour day with our troop at Girl Scout University last month! She deserves a badge…we deserve a drink!
