Needless to say I enjoy it! This year I have a combo troop of 14 girls. 1/2 Juniors - 4th and 5th grade, and 1/2 Cadettes - 6,7 and 8th grade. If you had told me 4 years ago that I would be a Cadette Leader I would have laughed. I liked being with the younger girls, I didn't have the patience to deal with the pre-teen attitude. When Ms L was in 6th grade it was all I could do to not velcro the girls to the wall. But with age comes wisdom and a calmer me.

Another thing Girl Scouts has given me is friends. Some of my longest adult friendships are with ladies whom I have been Leaders with and parents of girls as I have been the Girl Scout Leader.
