Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do.
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage.
But you'll look sweet, upon the seat,
Of a bicycle built for two.
I am not referring to the popular childrens song Daisy Bell, which was composed in 1892 as a love song. I am talking about Girl Scout Daisies, the first of five levels of girl scouting for girls in kindergarten and first grade The Daisies started in 2008, are named after Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low who founded the Girls Scouts in 1912.
My grand niece, one of two dozen little Daisies decked out in party dresses, sparkly shoes and hair ribbons waited anxiously for their first ballet which would earn each girl a badge to display on their blue Daisy vests. The peachy-cheeked darlings sat in awe during the performance accompanied by classical music, and were enthralled with the colorful costumes and elaborate sets. They seemed most impressed with the ballerinas dancing on their toes in pastel tutus and satin toe shoes. After the performance the daisies met the dancers who autographed their programs and answered questions about dance. Upon their departure, each daisy was given a ballerina tutu cookie favor.
I am pleased to have a source for Girl Scout Cookies sold every January. I will not tell you how many boxes of cookies I purchase but let’s just say our cookie jar is well stocked!
