Kristina from My Traveling Troop asked if she could interview me about living in Rota, Spain. What? You want me to talk even MORE about living here? Why I’d LOVE to! If you have the chance pop over there and read it and browse through some of her past interviews. It’s a great way to learn more about a new duty station!
Thanks Kristina! I had so much fun doing this!
The Girl Scouts are turning 100 years old and our troop participated by having a sunrise meeting. On a Sunday. At 7:30 in the morning. It was also pretty dang chilly but at least we had a beautiful view.
Good morning moon!
The girls all huddled together before we got started. Did I mention it was cold!
Everyone got into a circle and sang some songs: Happy Birthday, You Are My Sunshine (which actually has VERY depressing lyrics!), Mr. Sun and the girl scouts friends song. We also attempted to light some candles but that wasn’t so successful because it was windy as hell. (And cold! Did I mention that!)
Not as picture perfect when unlit.
After we did all that the girls got a breakfast snack of croissants, fruit and juice, then we had everyone pick up 5 pieces of trash from the beach (everyone really could have picked up 50, it was really trashy).
All (slight majority) of the Rota Girl Scouts!
Our Junior troop!
I don't even want to tell you how many times we attempted this jump shot. They are all this bad. C'mon girl scouts work together!
Good morning, Rota!
