Cookie Sales

Hello Friends,

We are wrapping up the annual Girl Scout Cookie sales and I realized I did not tell many of you about it. That’s right, cookies available since the first of the year, and you’re just now hearing it from me.

Straight to the point: Sweetie is a Daisy Scout (second year), and she’s selling cookies. Just like last year, they are $5 a box. If you don’t have a cookie connection, and you just have to get some, contact me.

Sweetie’s troop will use these funds to fix up their Scout Room, a cozy, shared space in the school Rec Center that is rocking a late 70’s/early 80’s deco. Additionally, they fund service and learning trips, like the one they took this fall to a downtown animal shelter.

For those of you who know me and have my personal email, feel free to reach out to me there. If you don’t have that info, then reach out to me at DadsDiaperDetour@gmail.com. I can forward you the online link, or we can speak directly. Whatever you prefer, I got you.

As always, I hope you all are doing well out there. Thank you for the ongoing support!

New Sticker for the Ride

Hello Friends,

I’ve never been one to put stickers on my cars. This is strange to me because I have put them just on just about everything else I own. Bicycles, guitar cases, water bottles, notebooks, toolboxes – all decorated with a variety of stickers. I finally found one I could commit to however, and today put it on the ride.

This is the second year that Sweetie enrolled in Daisy Scouts through the school. She has two great troop leaders and a bunch of other Moms who step in to assist. Their focus is on crafts, activities and friendship. Of course they sell cookies, but they don’t fixate on the sales. Funny how many stories I hear of that ruining the experience.

I was a Cub Scout and Webelo growing up, so I dig her participation. While I don’t know how much knot-tying and fire-starting the girls are going to learn, they are off to a great start. Trips to nature centers and animal shelters, and singing at the school Winterfest are just a couple of the things they get into besides their meetings.

Got a scout (Cub, Boy, Daisy, Brownie, Girl, etc.)? I hope their/your experience is as good as ours has been. Remember to support ’em, those cookies don’t sell themselves! Ok, well, they kinda do! We’ll see you out there, friends.
