Sometimes, a little push is all it takes

My job isn’t to force; it’s simply to introduce.

Yesterday was the beginning of this semester’s bi-weekly co-op in one of our local homeschool groups. It was our first time being in the co-op, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew, however, that my little social butterfly would have a ball if she just let herself.

Lately my daughter has been a bit more shy than usual. I think it’s her age; I was so much shier than she was at six and compared with me, she’s still her usual outgoing self. At any rate, she’s reluctant to try a few new activities lately. The soccer she was interested in last spring no longer holds any interest for her. Now, it’s all about skating, which is fine; as long as she’s got a physical outlet, I am happy.
