My daughter really, at heart, wants to be a boy scout like her brother...but there aren't any programs that offer what she's looking for. So, she started designing her own...we started designing it together. I figured it would be a fun project and if she stayed interested maybe we'd even get a group going through the local homeschool group or something.
We're like a week into really working on it and word has spread and everyone wants in. There's a group starting based on whatever we've got written in June. That's great. It would be awesome if this took off into a real program. We *can* get enough of it put together for them by then on our own, but I'd love if anyone would take a look at the little bit we've got so far and there's a discussion section on the board you could give me input, or here, or in pm.
Then, there's the issue that the girls involved really want books to sign off on things like boy scouts has. There are a few ways to self publish something like that, but I've never self published. I'm not going to rush that part, but I do want to have it figured out before it comes time to make it happen. lol

As for self-publishing the badge-books you could do that with LuLu if it turns out to be pretty big or my dd1's school did some sweet poetry books through shutterfly. You could probably just take 'em down to Kinkos/FedEx, too.

I ALWAYS wanted to be a boy scout grouwing up. And now it looks like my daughter is following in my footsteps. Not for us the cake-baking, babysitting, gardening, cookie-selling girl scouts!!!
We want to tie knots and canoe and hike and build forts! The cool stuff.
If I can help at all, PM me. I have a lot of graphic design and writing experience.
