Hi all! Kayla arrived safely today - earlier than I expected too as I figured she would be here tomorrow. It was just before nap and my big kids weren't here yet so we only pulled out her out. When my afterschoolers get here we'll look at the rest of the box. Photos to follow!

Thank you Tammy and everyone at Little Bear's Family Daycare for the treats and book. Everyone listened as I read to them about Kayla's journey, we added our line to our map, and the coal was a big hit. Especially for Gregory who loves Thomas and had never seen coal before. Last night Gregory and I took Kayla to Hollywood Video to rent some movies as no one around here is feeling 100%. We got a Blues Clues movie and Piglets Big Movie - we thought Kayla might like those. We are just hanging out today trying to get better. They are watching Thomas right now.

Kayla had a good, relaxing weekend. She got a new dress - one of Jillian's old ones and she spent the night with Anna and Nick (my schoolagers) who live across the street. Today she is meeting Kaihlyn for the first time. Their names are so close that sometimes feels like a tongue twister.

We have been so enjoying our time with Kayla. She has spent the night at each of my kids homes but Bianca and her turn is tonight. Then she'll spend the night with us for the remainder. We have been playing computer learning games online and reading alot. She has learned all about us and Ohio. Kayla says she is having fun. She misses her home and all the kids she met at Tammy's. She is looking forward to her next stop!

Well everyone had a wonderful last two days with Kayla. Yesterday was quiet around here but today we had a full house. Less Bianca who was sick and will be very sad when Kayla is not here Monday. The kids shared toys from home with Kayla. We also made teddy bears that I am putting on the front of a cd-rom case to give to the kids with all the pictures so their mom's and dad's can print them if they like. I'll post pictures of the final project next week. I have posted new pictures in the photo file, too.

Becky, I have been meaning to mention that we loved the fact that Kayla had a blankie bear. My son, Gregory, has had one since he was a baby and still carries it every day. He picked out a pink blankie bear for his sister and brought it to the hospital for her the day she was born. I managed to get a shot with Greg, Jill, Kayla and their blankies.

I'll post one more time to confirm that Kayla is on the road. Have a nice weekend!

Just wanted to let you know that Kayla has arrived safe and sound this morning. Boy was she excited!! She said that she got hot during her trip, so her and my girls got on their swimsuits, and went down to our spring creek for a little swim, she cooled off quick and loved it! She is just hanging outside with me and the girls now relaxing and enjoying the sun! I got some pictures of her in the creek! (don't worry she didn't get wet) Thanks for the bubbles!! She will be wearing her new sundress I made her to church tomorrow with us!

Oh I just wanted to let you know too, that Kayla will be going to the Zoo on a class field trip on Friday, I just found out about it yesterday!!So me and her get to tag along to the zoo!

Well today Kayla went to school with Emilee at Sonshine Christian Preschool, they had class pictures today, and after class I got there and took Kayla's picture with some of the kids and the teacher.

Then she went with Emilee to get her shots and physical for Kindergarten, this was Emilee's first time at the new pediatrician here in Arkansas, he was great, they even gave Emilee a hospital gown to wear, so we have a picture of Emilee and Kayla in the doctors office. Kayla was a great friend to Emilee after she got her shots, she gave her a great big hug, they both got bracelets for being good patients.

Tomorrow Kayla will go to school with my oldest at Mountainburg Elementary...

Well Kayla survived the zoo today, well it wasn't actually a zoo it was a drive thru wildlife place, but I got a picture of her with the kids, we couldn't take her around the animals, it was like a big petting zoo, and they were trying to eat everything we had in our hands, so she stayed behind. I have to take my daughter to cheerleading tomorrow, then I will mail her out. I need something for 16 kids is that correct?? Wow what a lot. But your busy! I will also be dropping of the film of her tomorrow too, so as soon as I get that back later this week and if I have time before I fly to colorado I will scan in the pictures, who knows what is on the film, my daughter took the camera to school with her. But the kids in the class all wrote about Kayla in a special journal that they made for her..


UPDATE - Kayla is "lost" - all attempts to contact Christina in Mountainburg, AR, have failed.................... where is our Kayla??? ..............
