Is your dd in girl scouts?

Do they like it? I was in girl scouts in 2-4 grade. My mom took me out because my leader was a racist. The funny thing is both of her daughters got pregnant by black guys. She was not happy lol

No. The troops in our area are too religious for our family.

Why not?

Nope! Our church does its own activity each week for the girls. Its the equivalant of scouts for boys, but geared for girls. We do not support Girl Scouts.

Because Girl Scouts associates with Planned Parenthood and as long as they are associated with Planned Parenthood, my family will not have anything to do with them period!

She would like to be, but between soccer, dance, and piano, we don't have time!

All 4 of mine are in it. this is my second year as leader for the older troop. we are heading up for all kinds of madness this year. lol mine love it, but our troopd do not put emphasis on the religious aspect. we have navajo, hopi, latinos and anglos, so we are a major mix.
