This past weekend we brought the hampster home from 1st grade and Vilate had her hand in the cage and was petting it and had no problems when the other kids let it crawl on the floor!!! Then today I went in to the 1st grade classroom with just Vilate and Faith during Vilate's lunch. The bunny got out of the cage and Vilate did really well while it hopped around the classroom. She walked around the room and only jumped a little when it hopped near here. She refused to sit on the floor, but would sit on my lap. It was really encouraging!!

Then when I picked her up from school she told me that she pet the bunny again and that she even pet a big, black dog!!! AWESOME VILATE!!!!!!

Progress is being made!!!! I am going to go back to the classroom on Thursday, maybe before!! I am so pleased!!!

i don't like animals either and yet since we have lived in this house we have owned 2 cows 8 chickens 3 dogs and 5 cats ( not all are still living and we did not have all of them at once) the kids know i don't like animals so they take care of them - but when the animals get out oh buy is horrible for me - especially when the cows got out i wanted to cry LOL

and hey i am afraid of squirrels when they jusmp out at you - one jumped out at one of dallens friends the other day here and it was a little scary it was like the squirrel was on crack the little boy even touched the squirrel yuck
