Last year when DD was in Kindergarten I signed her up for a Girl Scout Daisy troop that my friend was the leader of. It was a great troop of 20 girls. DD got to enjoy a ton of activities and received at least 20 badges. But meetings were at another school and I would have to rush DD from her school to that other school and we were always 10-15 minutes late for the hour long meeting.
So for this school year, with the old leader's okay, I decided to sign her up for a Daisy troop closer to home. It's an okay troop, but they don't do much and are very small to where they have ALL the girls of the troop (Daisies, Brownies, Cadettes, etc.) at the meetings and meetings are cancelled all the time. Plus DD is the only 1st grader out of the 3 Daisies. Meetings are closer and easy to get to on time, but were 2 hours instead of one hour...and so far she has gotten 2 badges.
For next school year, DD wants me to sign her up again (this time will be Brownie), but I really, really, really do not want to go back to that old troop. DD wants to go back because she has made friends with the other two Daisies...who again, are going to stay Daisies whereas DD will move up to Brownies. I have found another troop that looks very promising, but am curious to know...
Does it look bad if someone goes from troop to troop to troop or do people really not even care or notice (especially when not bring the vest from one to another)?
