This finding day started at the coffee shop then on to Build a Bear and the donation on behalf of foster kids around the world. This is G at the coffee shop and next photo is of her test hugging the bear she made. Beside her is her China sister Zoie Li who happens to be 6 months younger than G and not afraid of a thing.
This pic is G dropping hers in the box.
Then I allowed her to "find" her own bear. She chose a black bear like at the zoo. This is her giving it a "bath". She enjoyed this and is laughing in the pic.
Then we went to see the butterflies at the zoo. G is posing not so happily at the pool in the butterfly house.
We even got to see a boa constrictor out on a walk with two of the zoo keepers. G wouldn't touch it and neither would I. This photo does not do it justice. It was very large.
This is G and her finished bear. She doesn't name her animals so i named this bear Bao Jiang. This bear was given the name G was given on her finding day and part of the name we kept. We don't really know what gender bear is because at first she wanted it to be a him then she wanted it to be a girl named boy.
This is me and G in the Northwest Passage at the zoo. We had a friend along who took the pic for me.
And yes Senja you can see my teeth.
We ended the day at the coffee shop like it began, then home with a nap, a short one, and a viewing of the Lion King and the Aristocats. G has been working all of her puzzles too. Goodnight and remember to pray for all the children who are finding themselves without forever families.
