We started preparing for it yesterday. During Justin's nap, Charis and I pulled out white clothes, drew cow spots on the clothes, and colored them in. Before leaving for Chick-fil-A this afternoon, Charis drew a picture of a cow and wrote "cows milk" (yes, without the apostrophe). When she showed it to me, she said, "I wrote it because we get milk from cows." (See photo below. I also use the word "cow" loosely to describe her drawing. IMO, it did not look like a cow. In her defense, we do not live near cows, and she did not have a picture of a cow in front of her.)
After arriving at Chick-fil-A, I'm sad to write that my patience was wearing thin. I told Charis that she had to decide what she was getting at home, which she did, but she wanted orange juice, not apple juice or milk. I told her that "The choices are apple juice, milk, or chocolate milk." She realized that she was not getting orange juice and settled on apple juice.
The Chick-fil-A at Tech Road had face painting for children!! Woohoo!!!! Charis picked a design that reminded her of Queen Elsa.
All in all, it was a good time. (And I'm thankful for God's forgiveness for my impatience.)
Did you participate in cow appreciation day?
