My daughter is a joiner.

Opened up the yearbook that arrived today... pictures of staff, then the very first kid-pictures were pictures of the clubs.

There's Elayna, wielding a rake, posing with the Gifted*/Gardening Club teacher and a few friends, in a group pic of the Drama Club, being dramatic in a candid...

Four pics, all on Page 1. *laugh*

The next page had her wielding her flute in Band's candids.

Five clubs altogether, and she's prominently featured in three. Safety Patrol she can't be in yet - fifth grade only. Leaving only Chess Club.

Elayna: "I really want to be in Chess Club."
Me: "Why didn't you join?"
Elayna: "Same day and time as Gardening Club. I really want to do Chess Club, though. Maybe I could switch."
Me: "Well, let's stick with Gardening Club til you get your Junior Master Gardener certification, okay? You can do chess next year."
Elayna: "Okay. Because chess is really fun, too."

She's just ravenous for this. She wants to do everything.

(*There was no pic of the Gifted class. (The gifted kids are in regular classes and are taken out to go to a special Gifted class twice a week.) I'm curious as to why not. More of The Incredibles mentality, "Everyone's special"?)
