Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
My siblings all had off from school today, so we were finally able to find a local movie theater! It was so nice to go out and enjoy the day as a family.
The movie theater that we found was amazing... it shows movies that premiered while ago and are now out of current theaters, which means that it's cheaper to see a movie there. In fact, tickets there only cost $1.75! Can you believe it? We ended up going to see "Minions," which was a pretty good movie. I like when children's movies have hidden jokes in them for adults, like in this movies there were music references that kids wouldn't understand but adults got a kick out of.
Our family outing today reminded me of another family outing that we went on, one that I completely forgot to write about (or post pictures of on Facebook). We have also found a zoo down here! My parents took us all to the zoo one day and it was our first "fun" outing since we moved. The kids had a blast seeing all of the animals, and it was a nice break from our daily routine.
My parents actually got us annual passes for the zoo, so we're all looking forward to going back again. While we had fun with some of the zoo's attractions, like feeding the sheep and goats in the petting zoo, I know that we didn't get to see all of the animals or do everything there. Plus, the twins got to jump on these bouncy things out front where they were hooked up to a harness and got to flip around in the air. For Twin A especially (since she has major sensory needs), these things were awesome, and they would both love to go on them again.
I'm looking forward to taking more day trips with the family as we continue to settle in down here. It seems like we always have some project going on, or errands to run, so we haven't had much time for family fun days, but I know we'll get to enjoy a lot more the longer we're down here.
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
