Our first Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc. Troop 1019 Sleepover was a success!! We had a crazy fun night on Friday full of everything BUT sleeping: dancing, singing, painting masterpieces, watching movies, playing games, tie-dying clothes, painting our nails, doing each other’s hair, and bonding over cereal the next morning.
