We shared Zaxby's together, which is a big deal. When I first got her food and took her out to eat, she waited to touch the food for at least 45 minutes. It took a lot of coaxing and eventually her getting used to me buying her food, us eating together, and getting more comfortable. When I told her, don't by shy, I got this for us to nibble on and share, she went right in (still politely). Then I showed her how I apply my makeup and also did makeup for her. We planned for our final pass.

We went to a Tea Party at Primas Bakery, which was Little Mermaid themed. She met two of my friends, and got to hear from them stories about how they got to know me. We ate lots of treats, had tea, and colored. Then Kris and I went to the Powerhouse Cinema and saw Aladdin, which we were not expecting to be as long as it was. She was really impressed with the recline seats. Then on the way back, I took her to Steak and Shake and was dancing silly in the car as we waited in line for 20 mins to order and get the food. We had a great time and I love making her laugh or smile.

I went to see Kris' 8th grade graduation, which was a nice event put on. However, I had requested to take her on pass after the ceremony, and no one told me the process or brought the paperwork for me to sign. We then waited over an hour for their bus to come and bring them back to their campus, which I drove to, to sign out properly. That part should have been more organized since a lot of people came for passes or visits. I took her to get her nails done, we walked around a new park together, and then I took her to Steak and Shake and we talked a little bit about her upcoming discharge. She's nervous of other people and how she'll deal with them in the real world. I'm going to talk with her more on this after she gets word on the date of discharge.
