Joanna will be in tonight's PTA program. I can't find my video camera since we moved so I will be just taking pics.

Hubby took the pics. :(

The sang 10 Little Indians. The other class were the pilgrims. Joanna was serious the whole time. Then she saw me and actually smiled. I've been really shy my whole life and don't wish it on her. Any suggestions on how to help her??

I'm not sure how to help her but just going to school and interacting with kids her age must help I would think.
We are not aloud to call them "Indians" here now, they are "First nations" :) Some how "ten little first nations people" doesn't sound right though.

I guess this school is not politically correct yet. We actually said "Under God" during the pledge. :)

I haven't heard that song since I was a kid. Monk is right tho.. we can;t say that word anymore. We have a reservation outside of Brantford. We use the term natives, here.

As for shyness... because you feel you are, try not to hold back with her in experiencing new things. Encourage her to meet new friends (but of course.. dont talk to strangers still is important).
But most importantly, make her feel good about herself. You already do that tho. Your messages always show that. As long as she always knows that, she will like herself and most likely wont fall in the shyness trap.
