Traveling Kit is supposed to arrive today, so the dollies are hanging out on the porch waiting for the mailman.
Can you see the mailman yet? He should be here soon.
Oooh, I see him across the street delivering mail. Hurry, hurry!
"I have opened up the mail slot so he can deliver our special mail today" Diane announced.
"Traveling Kit is coming in a HUGE box which will NOT FIT through the mail slot. The mailman only uses that for letters" Lily Nicole explained to Diane.
I see the mailman carrying a big box, hurry let's go meet him!
Hello, hello! Is that a Traveling Kit box for us?
This box is heavy! Help me push this into the house.
Help us push this box Mr. Curtis, you look pretty strong.
Baby holds the screen door open so they can shove the box into the house.
Whew! That was a lot of work. Mr. Curtis has to go relax for awhile on the porch swing.
Diane brings the scissors to open the box. Norah Kathleen points to the box "Look! This section of the box is torn and there is a sack or a paper hanging out of the box. AACK!! Do you think that Traveling Kit could have fallen out of the box before she got here?" Norah Kathleen asked.
Lily Nicole came rushing over with the strapping tape dispenser so she could repair the torn area of the box with strapping tape. This should fix it right up!
Look! There are air pillows and a doll box inside the big box.
"Huh, what is this? I thought we were hosting Traveling Kit. This box says Kaya on it. There must be some kind of mistake." Lily Nicole stated.
"Kaya? We are hosting a Traveling Kaya??" Kaya came running into the living room when she heard the news.
Kaya was very excited when she heard the news about a Traveling Kaya being in the box by mistake.
"YAY! It says Kaya on the box. Hurry let's get her out of this box so I can meet my friend Kaya" Kaya exclaimed.
Kaya gives the Traveling Kaya box a great big hug.
Lily Nicole starts to open the lid to the box, as she does she takes a peek in the window. She notices that something is not quite right about this Traveling Kaya in the box.
"What?? This is NOT a Traveling Kaya!!" Kaya yelled.
"I don't understand. The box says Kaya on it, but this doll looks nothing like me. How can she be a Traveling Kaya if she doesn't look like me?" Kaya said as she looked from the box lid to the doll inside.
Lily Nicole said " Maybe because both Kaya and Kit begin with the letter K that is how the box mix up happened". They all agreed with her that the two boxes could easily be confused. Kaya helped Traveling Kit out of the box. "Come on Kit, let me show you around."
Kaya introduced Traveling Kit to Mr. Screetchy. It seems like he approves.
Here is the big boy Kelly. Kit quickly turned to look at Kelly and moved her hand away since he looked like he wanted to "play" with her.
Kit and the dolls sat on the couch while she showed them a map of Cincinnati that was in her travel box.
Kit gave the dollies a bag of goodies to thank them for letting her stay for a few weeks. They were having fun getting to know one another.
Kit introduced herself to Baby and thanked her for holding the door open earlier.
Kit also got to meet Mitchy. She was telling Mitch all about her travels when....
Mitchy decided it was time to take a nap. Will Kit ever get to do anything while she is here or will Mitch monopolize all her time?
