From retro to historical

Yet again, I’ve been wanting to update the blog for a month now, but real life kept getting in the way.  But I’m back, jack!

Anyway, we had our first GS meeting as Juniors yesterday, and I think we’re going to have a good year.  I love this age.   We kicked things off with the GS Way badge to get back into the swing of GS.  As I was looking through the badge activities, I saw some of the badges I earned as a Junior featured!  Yay!  But then I read what the blurb said:


“These historic badge activities.”  So now I’m historic.  After re-reading it, I realize that it’s not calling me old per se, but still, at first I associated it as being old.  Yeah.  But then I picked myself up out of the pity party and said, “Hey, I’m just part of a long line of Girl Scout traditions.”

And then I saw this:


1980?  What, that wasn’t that long ago, was it?  Oh.  Well, I wasn’t a GS yet in 1980, so I’m not THAT old, right?  🙂  I’m not quite sure I’ve accepted being 40 yet.  At least mentally, I haven’t.  Bah!  Get off my lawn, kids!  I rode my bike uphill both ways on my way to GS meetings!  We had to weave our own fabric and dye our own thread to make badges when I was growing up – and weeeee liked it!

BTW, that Musician badge was one of my favorites!
