Katie is my shy kid. She doesn’t like being up in front of crowds – it makes her very uncomfortable.
When I signed her up for the chime bells class at homeschool co-op, she was okay until she found out they’d be having a small performance at the end of the semester in front of the moms and the other kids.
She feigned sickness the morning of the performance, but I wasn’t buying it. I knew that she needed to do this to overcome her fears.
And I’m happy to report that she did great!! (and she sticks her tongue out when she’s in deep thought. It’s hereditary!)
