Today at VBS Ashton got to pet a sheep and learned about the missing sheep and the Shepard who found him.
She made a sheep from cheerios and a paper plate. I don't know why it has 4 eyes and why the eyes are not together, but this is a special sheep.
When we left the handler was still allowing kids to pet the sheep. Ashton of course was all about petting it again. So we let her and the handler said that they were going to China to adopt for the first time. Their son is there, they're matched and she was waiting for her fingerprint appointment.
We chatted for a good 10 minutes about adoption. It's funny how you learn about more adoptive families once you're in the process or have already adopted.
Last night, when Ashton went to bed, there were tons of thunderstorms. But our little girl hasn't woken. She went to bed without a fuss and is sleeping soundly. I don't know why tonight is different, but we'll take it.
