I jumped into the new Girls First program this year with both feet. 

There are parts that I love about the new program, and some things I am hoping will change. What do you think?

After returning home yesterday from our two day tenting trip with our almost twenty Brownies, I unloaded and put all of our gear into the shed. Exhausted, I continued on with my chores, still feeling the high that comes after a successful camp.
