Patric wins on coolness factor in January for arranging a Boy Scout outing to the Montgomery Hyundai factory to see cars being made.
During which they got to ditch school early;
hang out with their friends;
and take a small group tour car making in action.
Thumbs up for the Boy Scouts!
We tried a second Girl Scout troop (the first troop story later, after I've calmed down a bit yet). We went to the first cookie booth sale the day after I returned from Africa--it was written down wrong on the sheet and was not happening the day we arrived. We tried again the following Saturday. No one showed up, and we received an e-mail later in the day asking whether anyone was going to participate because the leader wasn't really feeling well.
I will now be withdrawing the ladies from troop number 2.
