Here are the clubs Bear wants to join in jr. high:
Rocket Club (in which the kids spend the school year putting together model rockets and then launch them at the end of the year)
No big surprises there, except maybe the Rocket Club, which I do think she would really enjoy. I've heard the science teacher is wonderful, and I'm assuming he sponsors that one.
Notice the complete and total lack of any sports. Shocker, huh?
She is totally WIRED for junior high. Can’t wait to get there. Totally jazzed by the thought of:
-dances (damn it)
-did I mention the lockers? She really, reeeeeally wants a locker. A lot. (Anyone care to lay odds on how long it takes her to forget/misplace the combination?)
-using pens instead of pencils in class
Miraculously, the things that terrified me about jr. high don't seem to faze her:
-changing clothes for PE (what if I sweat??)
-showering IN FRONT of people after PE (no explanation necessary)
-detention (no, I never had to go, but the thought of it horrified me)
I can't believe she's almost done with elementary school. What just happened??
