The rest of the week

The rest of the time with Claire was just delightful.   Being 3 years old, I thought that it might be a little more traumatic for Claire with her family being gone to the Dominican.

The family had a great time - although sometimes very hard - spending time with their friends, encouraging them in their adoption process.

But Claire did well really.  So grateful for answered prayers on both her behalf and for the family.

I took her to visit her great-grandpa Pete.  
She loved pushing all the buttons to go in and out of the building!

We went to parks.

And to the post office to mail Aunt Mindy a birthday gift.

She helped in the kitchen

We spent a day at the zoo

She LOVED the gorillas!  She really loved the dark hallway jungle area.  So funny to me because her older sisters were so afraid of it and for a time would NOT go to the gorilla area!

 "I want to hug a tree"

As she petted the lamb, she sang "Mawy Had a Witto Yamb"

and "Baa Baa Bwack Sheep"

She did lots of finger painting and also some stamping.  She thought she'd like to have some lipstick and stamped her lips!

 Such a fun girl!  Thank you, Jill and family for letting us have her for a week!  I know you had a lot of re-training her and unspoiling her after you came home!
