Emmylou went to the zoo for the first time a few weeks ago. She loves being with her people, and it was fun to share the experience with them. While she appreciated seeing all the animals that we have been talking about and learning the signs and sounds for, there was a common theme to the visit that had nothing to do with the animals themselves. No matter how impressive the creature was that we were trying to point out to her, she would scan the pin area with extreme concentration then finally a smile would take over her face as she excitedly pointed at ONE THING EVERY TIME…….yelling over and over……BALL, BALL, BALL, BALL! So that is what we will remember about her first trip to the zoo; her obsession with the different balls the animals had to play with, lions included.
