We do our best to teach the girls and get them involved in everyday chores and things that they'll do when they go to their forever families some day. One of those chores is setting the table. Since Elly only walked with a walker, it seemed pretty evident she wouldn't be able to do such things--not because she didn't want to though. However, we thought of a way to allow her much more independence and the ability to do more things like the other girls. The answer was simple you see, just put a basket on her walker! This way she could take her empty dishes to the kitchen after meals, take her clean laundry to her room, and help set the table--all like the other girls do here. I can't tell you how excited she was when we told her what we planned to do! She is very happy with her new basket on her walker--I just hope we are able to put one on her new one but don't see a reason why we can't. This also gives her the ability to carry toys or books from here to there. It was a great solution and she is quite happy about that!!
Elly's one happy girl!! Such a great job setting the table too, Elly!!
