That was, of course, until we got there.....
I'm not sure if it was all the kids (even though she knew a large portion of them) or the structured activity or what, but we weren't off to a great start.
Then it got a better. For a minute, until......
one of the volunteers spoke to her. The horror.
Meanwhile, Abby had completely deserted us and was off creating beautiful things because she is the self declared master of the glue gun. The kid didn't even burn herself, which is more than I can say.
So to recap - Maya's first kid's club experience started out rocky, then got a bit better, then she wasn't so sure, then she got right into it, but by the end she'd had enough of people and could be found hanging out here.
At least she was still smiling.
Oh and the project was wooden sleighs that my sitter's husband had made. The kids painted them and then there was a buffet of bows, greenery, flowers, bells and other holiday doodads that the kids glued on them to decorate. Maya and I tag teamed hers, she picked out the decorations and told me where to glue them while I worked the glue gun, burning my finger prints off in the process. Probably should of had Abby in charge of gluing on our project.
