We have a Girl Scout in our midst...and a saleswoman!



Our daughter is officially joining Girl Scouts tonight. That means she will say the Girl Scout promise and get her pin. She decided to stop dancing classes and sell cookies. Not a bad trade if you ask me. She was so excited about the cookies that we met the troop leader Friday and got the order form, and since Friday she has sold over 80 boxes of cookies! Here's the funny part- 14 of them were to the McDonald's employees (and one customer) as we were going through the drive-through! NO JOKE. She asked the guy at the checkout before I could stop her, and he wanted Trefoils. Then someone else yelled, HEY, I want some, too, and before I knew it we were inside collecting orders. And then a customer said he hadn't bought cookies in years- could he buy some, too? It was crazy. And, yes, they all paid up front. So all I have to do is drop off the delivery. Not too bad for a couple of Happy Meals.

Whoops! I keep forgetting to order cookies. I told M.E. twice I would do it and I forgot both times. Sorry! You can put Tommy and me down for 1 box of Thin Mints...

Ann, that's funny! Looks like your baby girl has a career in sales! :) Oh, and I'll order two boxes of trefoils (my weakness) and a box of tagalongs! That was easy too, just something about girl scout cookies...

Isn't it funny how fearless kids are?
