She was dressed and knew it was time to go. They gave her a
We made it back here with no issues in the car. She was fantastic in the car. Once she knew no one else was around, she also started to cling to me more. This is normal for a child going through this experience. We settled in the apartment a bit & then went for a quick stroll to get pizza & salad for dinner. We've sprayed the kitchen so hopefully we can cook in it again tomorrow. Summer was just in awe. Everything is new to her. That's why we didn't go far & didn't go somewhere crowded. I wished I'd taken her picture of her drinking sprite. Priceless. You could tell it was her first time taking a sip. She was people watching too. We had pizza and shopska salad. Delicious. We are not sure if she is right or left handed. And, she needs help w/ learning how to hold a fork. She drank out of the glass just fine though. Sweet as sweet can be. just scared at the moment.
Came home & decided to give her a bath. That is also a new concept and will have to wait. I'm going to see if she'll take one tomorrow w/ her new sister. Maybe seeing her sister not being afraid of the water will help her. Keep in mind, some children are terrified of water when they come home from an orphanage. Alex was the same way. My kids were petrified of our pool. Now, I can't get the fish out of the water. LOL. I'm sure by next summer, she'll be swimming like the rest of the kids. Got her dressed for bed. She hasn't spoken a word yet except for nay when I said Leka Noscht (good night). Slowly but surely, she's coming around. Please continue to lift Summer up in prayer. She has a big transition coming up.
