Throwback Post: One Loving or Liked Quality

**THROWBACK POST**

June 1 2015:

We did something new last night rather than our traditional compliment cards. First, we did a 5 or 10 minute mindfulness exercise. Then we each thought of and wrote down one loving and/or liked quality of each other. I read each one aloud and we discussed what that meant for each of us. That was so inspiring and amazing.

Thomas’ qualities: How flexible he is and how thoughtful he is. Lillian’s qualities: She can be fun and her love of reading. Camilla’s qualities: She makes me feel loved and she tells me stuff like this. This made for such heartfelt and fun conversation! Give it a try! xoxo

Two more cool pictures from last night’s sunset. Sooooooo beautiful. It’s clear why Thomas thought it would be awesome to have a roof that opens so we could see this inspiring sky from inside the house!

“I want to keep my Report Card in my room for the rest of my life … as a kid … ’cause I don’t want to forget Mrs. O’Connor!” -Thomas Darnell

Thank you to Mrs. O’Connor for being such a fabulous teacher and role model, for being patient, and for texting almost daily with me to ensure we were working together to help Thomas be his best!!

Throwback Post: Sat on a Rock With Wonderful Sounds

**THROWBACK POST**

Walk with Thomas last night. We sat on this rock for quite a while. Round after round of ducks and geese came over to see if we had food. They make the most wonderful sound when asking for food. It’s really soft and quiet.

Then we saw a swallowtail butterfly. We watched him travel from bud to bud. So cool!!!

Lillian and Camilla June 2016 Date Day – Picking out dessert for later and smelling all the yummy soaps. We enjoyed our desserts on the patio then played three games of UNO. Lillian won every game!!

We finished our date by reading together on my bed and Lillian made braids in my hair. I LOVE it when she plays with my hair. Perfect date day …. xoxo

Movie Night: Matrix Resurrections

November 19 2022

Movie night last night. Thomas’s choice.

Matrix Resurrection

Thomas didn’t like it. He says the story didn’t make sense. I like the actors, but I agree with Thomas. The editing also seemed sloppy.

I mean, there were portions that made sense, but too many gaps. It’s like the creation of the story line was rushed.
