Last weekend I took my entire Guide unit – all of the leaders and all of the children – to London. That is actually less impressive than it sounds, since my unit is currently only 6 Guides. But still, we managed to get them all free on the same day. We wanted to visit Pax Lodge, but then we started to think what else we … Continue reading Pax Lodge!

That should be interesting. One of their suggestions was a snowball fight, so we did that right then and there. The Brownies love snowball fights. We do it with newspaper and cotton … Continue reading Snowball fights and unit charters
