My shy kid...

...asked this week if she could join Drama Club and Girl Scouts!

I'm so proud of Elise! She is painfully shy at times but really seems to be coming out of her shell very early this year. It normally takes her much longer.

She attended PreK at this same school, so she has an advantage over most of the other 1st graders in that this is her 3rd year at the school. I think that is helping her so much. Even last year, she never wanted to do anything that might draw unwanted attention and would cling to me each morning at drop off.

Fast forward to last week when she brought home the Drama Club and Girl Scout notices. I didn't even need to ask her. She told me about them in the car before I even had a chance to see the notices.

So, after school today she will attend the Drama Club meeting to see if it's something she might enjoy and tonight we'll attend a Girl Scout open house to get more info.

Amazing! Elise is going to have a great time. I'm so happy to hear that she wants this.

Congrats! What a milestone! Jade is in her second year as a Daisy Scout and loves it! I am sure Elise will too!! I started and led the troop last year (I know, bold!) - this year I am just a parent volunteer! Drama sounds fun! The girls are starting drama/singing/instruments at church tomorrow - they are looking forward to it!

She is blossoming, I think you are in for an exciting (and busy!) year.
