Smart Girl Scouts!

It's Chess Tournament time! True to form, Girl Scouts have a strong presence. Even within out own little troop, it only took minutes for 3 of them to find each other ... And we are still looking for a 4th who was here last year.

My own little one has been trying to figure out how to beat the "castling move" and I don't even know what that is. These little girls are so smart!

Bring It On!

I have got to admit I love this ... a Girl Scout taking on a champion hot dog eater and the interloper weatherman (who won, by the way). GO HANNAH! Eat those Girl Scout Cookies!

Forever and Ever

Katie is yet another superstar Girl Scout. Today she came by the office to show off her tattoo (and get a Girl Scout Cookie order form). I'm thinking maybe GSUSA could consider partnering with tattoo shops to offer discounts for lifetime members!

Behind The Scenes

While preparing for a local television morning show, I enlisted the help of my daughter and her friend. We have some CUTE little PR Stars who will be on the air making Girl Scout Cookie ice cream sandwiches. But the recipe was chosen by these two and they made the finished product that got displayed on TV. What would I do without my helpers?

Sienna Won My Heart

While schedules fly and so much seems like a challenge to do, I just have to take a moment to share a memory. In November, we had our first OFFICIAL session for PR Stars. Girls who have sold over 500 boxes of cookies were invited to join. Naturally, every girl is precious in one way or another, but little Sienna won my heart.

There was a lot of hustle and bustle with the Tulsa World reporter giving a session on interview etiquette, blogging sessions, and a super-fast photo shoot. This little girl was a bit shy and really wanted to keep her sweatshirt on. I took just a moment to talk with her and we struck a deal (but it's a secret, so I can't tell!). Those little eyes looked up into mine with trust ... and my heart melted. What a brave little girl! She made me so proud. Proud of her, proud of Girl Scouts, proud of every little moment that defines a brave step in a girl's life.

Have I said lately, I'm proud to be a Girl Scout?!

KJRH Faces Off

A cookie crunch off is more difficult than it looks ... as Phil and Beth soon found out! The rare sighting of producer Phil Price must have thrown reporter Beth Burnett off her game. While it appeared she had lead the girls to victory, Beth hadn't actually swallowed several cookies and even more had been flung to the floor. Phil was named the winner. Hopefully, more KJRH staff will have the opportunity to dethrone Phil in a studio Girl Scout Cookie crunch off soon!
