Koko, the Gorilla

Each week a child in Timothy's class gets to take home a stuffed animal named Koko. Last Monday, Timothy's face was beaming as he ran to me with a giant green bag. In the bag was Koko, her pajamas and blanket, a book "Koko's Kitten", and instructions. Timothy was to take Koko on whatever adventures he was a part of this week, and either draw pictures or take photos and write a story. We had a great time this week with Koko

First, Koko got to try out the swings (For more works of art check out Magic Marker Monday).

Koko played on the computer.

She drank milk from a straw

Koko and Timothy beat Dan and me at Scooby Doo.

She went to AWANA with Timothy and learned that God created all the animals, even gorillas!

On Saturday Koko attended a soccer themed birthday party.

Where all the silly kids were putting cones on their heads-she had to be a part!

Koko had great adventures, but we learned a lot by having her home with us. There is a real gorilla named Koko who uses sign language to communicate! And she loves kittens and has had a few that she has treated like her own babies. It's really a sweet story, and you can learn more about Koko and her kittens here. There is even a page for kids!
