Weighing in on Our Autismland Vacation

Although there's already a chill in the air up here in the Northeast, my head is stuck some time back in July while I try to figure out what happened this summer. The big question being if Roman evolved over 15,000 miles trapped traipsing all over creation with us, doing everything from making pottery to walking a tight rope to washing an elephant. I'm gonna go with yes.

Week One!

Alrighty, y'all. We're officially three days in to our trip, and it's... going. A little sweaty, and a little cranky. <--understatement!

Lesson learned so far? New York City is not Roman's destiny- it's deafening in the streets, and it's positively ear-slitting UNDER GROUND. (Subways. *grrrrr*)

Quick post today as we circle the drain make our final preparations for our road trip. (Pray for me!) Packing lists *check*; camera gear *check*; one bag of clothing – shoes included! - per person *whattttttt tha blazes? Are we still in America?*; camping gear *check*.

<Insert reporter voice here> And in a terrible bit of irony, family drives off without son. (I’m only writing this because it happened to my sister. Granted, my parents loaded all her baby gear into their car and forgot her at my grandparent’s house. But still…)
