Make New Friends and Keep the Old.  In this case my new friend is also my old one. I was cleaning out my closet when I found a picture of my old Brownie troop from when I lived in Prattville in first grade before I moved away for six years. I was looking at the picture, and I thought I recognized one of the girls. I looked on the back of the picture at the names and realized that one of the girls is now one of my new best friends.

When we were Brownies we did a lot of fun things like being in the Prattville Christmas parade, going to Kamp Kiwanis for the camporee, and going on a hayride. My friend, Sami, had quit Girl Scouts after that year and rejoined after a six-year break from scouting. Now in our Senior troop, we go weekend camping at Kamp Kiwanis and we get to plan our meals and activities. We also work on badges, do service projects, and help at the camporee each year.

            It's a small world and I have had the chance to go back to places I have been before to see old friends again. I'm thankful that Girl Scouts has allowed me to make new friends and keep the old through the years.
