On the road again...

The kids continue to do really well on this trip. Some RADish behavior from Corazon but easy to redirect for the most part. We spent the morning and early afternoon visiting a family member of C.'s in NJ. She runs an amazing wildlife refuge, and treated the kids to a behind-the-scenes tour. They had done most of this before but it never ceases to thrill them. I am so impressed by their questions. Tortuga and Corazon love to learn. Tracy was very impressed with their behavior and questions. We hadn't seen her in about 16 months and she commented that Tortuga just seems to be so happy and calm. She found him engaging and thoughtful and teased him when he said he wanted to work there. He does love animals. She noted how different he is from a year ago and it was good to be reminded. It isn't that we don't notice the progress but we definitely see the challenges and can sometimes get so weighed down by them. It helps to be reminded and to hear that the positive changes are so notably visible.

It's really cool to look at all these pics and be able to identify all of you and your personalities.

I am so blessed to have you in my life!
