Yesterday, Katie and I were over at Lily's place for a quick lesson and a couple rounds of mah-jong. While we snacked on spring rolls and chicken wings and chocolates and learned how to gamble, the kiddies Summer, Stella, and Natalie spent some time together, too.
Little Summer has a turtle and a rabbit as pets and poor Natalie is terrified (petrified) of all animals. When the rabbit hopped too close to Natalie, she let out a HUGE yell and started crying and freaking out. We're considering a pet so she can learn that animals are really friendly.

She's found a book to peruse.
Here they are again quietly reading together (although this only lasted a few seconds).
