for a while now, malia has been telling people she wants to be an actress when she grows up. it's even in her kinder yearbook. but she also loves to sing and dance. i wanted her to have an extracurricular activity for after school but couldn't decide where. she's a bit small for sports, and the rec center classes were only good for just for fun classes. so i was excited when i came across the CYT (christian youth theater) website a couple of months ago. i knew it would be a perfect fit for her.

when i told her yesterday that she would be starting a new class that involved singing, dancing, acting, and costumes, she immediately started jumping and screaming with joy.

the class started today. malia couldn't wait to meet her new teacher. but of course there was a parent meeting first. so they played a disney trivia game while the kids waited. disney trivia - i knew i had made a good choice =). aside from that, the organization has really good reviews, and i was really impressed with their presentation. malia went off to her "wiggles" class with her new teacher, ms emily. she had a big smile on her face when she came out and can't wait to go next week. her homework is to watch mary poppins. that's my kind of homework!
