Seeing that we hadn't been able to see Maria at all yesterday, I suggested that maybe we could have a picnic together and then go swimming afterwards. After a lot of back and forth, it was determined that the only way we would get Maria to participate at all was if we came to her house.
So we did and we had a picnic in the backyard with Erika and Auntie Yukiko. Maria showed up for a few minutes. We were a bit disappointed that Erika decided she didn't want to go swimming after all, but had a fabulous time hanging out with Aidan, Caitlyn and Evelyn at their pool.
