Earth Day, talent show, other stuff

So, yesterday was Earth Day. I spent most of the day with my Girl Scout troop (yes, I am and have been a Girl Scout for the last four years) running a recycling drive. Harriet and Kristy joined our troop this year. I didn't get home until late last night, and when I did, I simply crashed.

Today was the first day of dress rehearsals for the talent show. Have to say, they've been surprisingly uneventful, so far, though Miss Drama Queen yelped about her ballet costume, "Well, this is too small!" She stamped her feet and carried on like a little kid.

Speaking of little kids, a couple 5th graders came by to watch the rehearsals. Lindsey Bergman, I remember her from the basketball game, said she knew someone who worked with a lighting company. She knows more about computers than our IT people have forgotten. She even agreed to help with decorations. Oh, and did I mention she's in my Girl Scout troop?

An eighth-grader named Marisol Luna is in charge of the modern dance routines for the talent show. She's from Chicago and knows all kinds of dance moves, the stuff that's on TV all the time. She has long brown hair and wears clothes I only see on TV, she may very well be the coolest girl in school. I walked in on their practice and I have to say it's intense! Even Mia, who may be the fittest girl in my class because of what she does with her figure skating, was winded.

Happy Earth Day Haley! That is cool that you have friends in your troop. I was a Girl Scout for a few months, but I didn't know anyone so I quit.

Even though Meredith is a jerk, I have to admit she looks pretty in that picture!

That's great that Lindsey is helping. Maybe you guys can get to be friends.

Dance rehearsals are intense! You know its hard when Mia is breathing hard.

Hey, how are Brigdet and Hillery doing after that outburst, or should I ask?

Oh, well I bet they talent show will be great, especially if Marisol is helping!

I didn't know you were a GS too! =)

Anyways, good luck with the show! I know it's gonna be a lot of work, but hopefully it comes out well.

Hopefully, Meredith won't win. At our school, the Edwards girls always win because they "can't lose".
I'm not a Girl it fun? It sounds like something I'd like.
Have fun!
