We were able to spend time with 5 year old Avril again during our Superkids trip to Taiwan in November. We have met sweet Avril a couple of times now, and we always enjoy getting to spend time with her. She is active and fun, and has a good sense of humor! Avril is very verbal and fun to talk with. When we asked if she would count for us, she said “I can’t count now, I’ll get too distracted!” I think playing takes priority over counting any day!
Avril loves to play pretend and made sure to cook us up a big feast. At one point she was bored of our conversation, so she went and climbed into a baby bouncer seat and looked at us
