Earn a Badge Today

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

I would like to say, that as a former Girl Scout, I didn’t have to look up Our Promise on the internet, but as the first Law of Girl Scouts is to be honest and fair, I cannot.  It’s Girl Scout Day and I’d like to celebrate by telling you how to earn a couple of badges while celebrating two other holidays.

It’s Plant a Flower Day!  You can earn a badge by, TADA… planting flowers!  Celebrate Plant a Flower Day by picking up some seeds and putting them in a pot with dirt and water.  In a few weeks, you’ll be able to see the fruits of your labor.  These beautiful flowers will make a nice gift or beautiful decoration in your home.

It’s also Check Your Batteries Day!  You should earn a badge and celebrate this holiday by running around your house, finding everything that requires batteries and seeing if things still work.  Have fun turning switches on and off, flashing lights and mbatteriesaking random noises with various objects.  Remember to check important stuff like your backup wireless cell phone charger, car battery, and smoke alarms.  And, if you’re hours behind like I am today, check your alarm clocks!  You should know by now that while we were oversleeping the world sprang forward an hour.

Visit www.girlscouts.org for more and actually accurate information on Girls Scouts and their badges.  It’s been a long time, Buddies.  Do you think there should be a Girls Scouts After Dark Club? You know for the roses with a few thorns.  Okay, nevermind, it was just a thought.

Holiday on my friends!
