Bear (my 2e super sensitive, ultra-timid, anti-group and VERY anti-group movement activities kiddo) just had his first all charter play practice. I had been ready for all sorts of problems and you know what I got? After an initial bout of basic shyness he JOINED IN!!! Laughing, smiling, making eye contact, hamming it up... in a group.... in a group that was milling and following director's instructions... with students he didn't know... with a teacher he didn't know... I'm so beside myself I can't even type sensibly. I'm actually crying as I write this. It was nothing short of miraculous!
