This is the Countessa.
She has always been my shy reserved child....even a bit fearful of things she wasn't familair with.
She spent the first two weeks of kindergarten hiding behind the book case in the classroom refusing to speak to anyone.
She spent the first two weeks of 1st grade glued to her brother.
For the first two weeks of second grade she refused to leave my side before the morning bell rang.
For the first two weeks of 3rd grade she was a bit more adventerous. She would venture off to play with friends in the morning before the first bell as long as I agreed to wait for her to go in class.
To my pride and amazement this child ran to the car after school yesterday with a smile bigger than any I've seen and announced she had been voted
3rd Grade Representative on Student Council!!!!
I can not express how happy I am that my shy little girl has grown so unbeleivably confident in just the past few months.
Although, this now means mommy has to get her up and ready for school an hour earlier twice a month for Student Council meetings!!!!!
Have I mentioned.....
The girl DOES NOT like to get up in the mornings!!!!!!
