New experiences

Molly didn’t have school today because winter break began. And now that she’s a kindergartener, we have more options to send her to programming in town on days the schools are closed. So today she went to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center’s day camp program. She wasn’t super psyched about it, but she was a trooper and tolerated the idea. But when I picked her up after 5 and she was one of only two kids left, I kinda panicked. I asked her, “How was your day?” She said, “Awesome!” She and the remaining girl – who had to be at least 8 — gave each other hugs and discussed if they were returning for future days. When M heard the girl was coming back on Jan 2, she asked if she could, too. As we were leaving, I asked her to tell me some specifics about the day. She said, “It was too amazing to talk about.”

    That’s so great that she loved it. I so admire that she went to a place where she knew no one had a wonderful time and made friends. What a kid❤️❤️

    Actually, Lucy (Heather’s daughter) was there! But she didn’t know she was going to be and it sounded like they didn’t spend much time together. I agree, though — I’m really proud of her. AO & I spent last night waxing on about how great she is.

    Totally great kid! Plus, that is a line she can use over and over again as a teenager, just as she shuts her bedroom door…
