Viva la Revolution

I wasn't sure if I would find an after school program in California that we all liked as much as the teacher aftercare attended in Texas. When presented with my options, I emailed Tracee Sioux to ask her what she knew about Girls, Inc. I guess I was nervous that beneath all the positive affirmations there might be a hidden agenda like the ones that occasionally permeate through other national organizations say, for example, The Boy Scouts or The Catholic Church.

Well, Tracee not only emailed me RIGHT back raving about Girls, Inc. she also continues to inspire and educate on behalf of girls though her empowering blog.

Yesterday, when I picked the girls up from Girls, Inc. I got to watch as they presented their projects to the group. It was a thrill to hear my girls speak and even better to get a peek into their psyche. Here is what Hazel had to say about herself:



Coincidentally, Tracee relaunched her girl empowering blog now titled The Girl Revolution. It chock full of awesome, caring, insightful, hopeful, smart, good, age-appropriate, kind, friendly and helpful information. If you are mothering or mentoring a girl, you should bookmark or subscribe to this great resource.

I don't have a girl. I have three smelly boys who love a good fart joke, and can polish off a seven dollar jug of organic milk like nobody's business. I'm hopelessly out numbered.
