Last night I met my Little match from the Big Brothers Big Sisters program! She was a bit shy at first - a lot of shrugging, quietness, and "I don't know" - but then she came out of her shell. I'm hoping that shyness leading to slight pushiness will result in friendliness and fun outings with open communication, mutual respect, and good role-modeling. For now, I'm content with the quick trip into a Chinese restaurant where we ordered an incredible amount of food, allowing us to take home enough leftovers to feed a small army. Next week might be an arcade day...or a Halloween party...or pretty much anything not McDonalds or outside in the cold.
