Adventures to come
As if the holiday season wasn't busy enough, I have signed Hannah up for two activities beyond regular school stuff. Starting next week she will be learning to ice skate and she will start attending Girl Scout Daisy meetings.
Ever since Hannah found out that there is such a thing as ice skating (about two years ago) she has been asking me if she can learn to ice skate. Being a very clumsy individual myself, I have never tried ice skating and figure I never will and while I'm ok with that I have high hopes that maybe.. just maybe Hannah will be less clumsy than me if she learns some balancing skills young in life. So when Hannah made fast friends with a girl in her school that ice skates I did what I could to find out where, when, and how much and after little deliberation I enrolled her in classes. I am crossing my fingers that she doesn't let a few falls get in her way of enjoying something she could do her entire life.
The Girl Scout Daisy thing kind of fell into our laps. When Hannah started school I wondering if there were troops to get into but I wasn't sure if I wanted her in one. I have good and bad memories about girl scouts. But when I found out that a friend of ours who also has a 5 year old was going to start a troop I decided to check into it a bit more and than I told Hannah about it. She was instantly hooked on the idea and now she asks just about everyday when the meeting is. They will plant mini gardens, learn how to treat others, learn how to give back to their society and to their world. I'm actually rather excited for her. And for all our friends and family member who love girl scout cookies, you now have a supplier (assuming Hannah sticks with it).
