My Daisy girl selling cookies.

This year Kinzie started Girl Scouts, and is a Daisy. I was so excited to get her into it, that I was roped into being one of the leaders so we would actually have a troop. But it has been a fun year, and it is something her and I get to do together a couple times a month.

One of the highlights of the year so far has been selling cookies.

We made a troop goal for each girl in our group to sell 50 boxes, and then Kinzie made her own personal goal to sell 80 boxes. I had NO idea what to expect, and to me it seemed like selling 80 boxes would be quite a task.

She practiced her sales pitch, we loaded up our wagon with cookies, bundled up, and headed out in the cold to sell cookies in our neighborhood.


After coming in and warming up with some hot chocolate, she called all our family to take orders from them as well.

I was super impressed; she did amazing. She ended up selling a total of 130 boxes of cookies,(only 12 of which we bought) and well exceeded her goal! She was so proud of herself, and so was I!
