Nostalgia ... minus the helmet!
As a little girl, my dream was to have a horse. My parents helped me make that dream come true and learn some good life lessons in the process. Both my brother and I were given the opportunity to make one big purchase, but we would have to earn half of the money and our parents would give us the other half. I guess you could call it a "matching grant" of sorts! My brother chose a computer. Me? I chose a horse (ironic now because I'm the one who spends my life on computers). Those were some wonderful years, and I love knowing that my own daughter will be able to have similar experiences through Girl Scouts.
