Field trip and Thomas and Camilla June 2017 Date Day.
First stop – Field trip! Tour of Reno Airport Traffic Control Tower arranged by the awesome fellow who is teaching a group of homeschoolers coding and robotics. No pictures allowed inside so this is what we got!!
First we toured Atlantic Aviation’s building and hangars used by private plane owners. Then the control tower. Incredibly interesting and what an amazing view!!!
Next, we headed back to Atlantic to see the coding instructors little airplane. As we were headed back in the building a pilot asked if we wanted to tour a business jet. So, we did that too!!! Thomas enjoyed it …. a lot!!! xoxo … ✈️ … Thank you. And, bring us more, please. xoxo …
Next stop: Humane Society to share love with cats and rabbits. My eyes were sweating with all of the sweet souls with sad eyes asking to be loved.
By the time we left Thomas was feeling pretty sad about the huge number of them. I helped us both by pointing out that they were in a safe and cool place with volunteers and employees who care for and love them.

Thomas loved our date day hike yesterday. Some of his thoughts while we were way up there … “I could stay out here forever. I feel like I can do anything. This is the best day of my life. I am so glad that we did this. And he thanked the sun for warming us (it was cold)!!”
Now he wants to go hiking on the Tahoe Rim Trail and become a member of the 160 mile club. I think that sounds like an awesome idea for this young man … and his Mamma!!
