Now that you are in full leader mode after not seeing your girls over the winter break, it is time to start planning ahead. If you are selling cookies, then you are knee deep in those activities, earning financial literacy leaves and focusing on troop goals. However, these are still little girls and they need to have a break from all of the cookie talk (and if the truth be told, you as a leader can use a break yourself).
