What a year its been

In 2010, we went from being on the right path to being completely derailed, to trying find the tracks, to wondering if we were on a frozen lake like the Polar Express. I think right now, I'm still telling the engineers to turn left and right, but at least we can see the tracks again.

It is a reminder that you can work your butt off, and small things can make it all for naught. Differences in attitude make a difference. Proactive preparation can also make a big difference- between being able to participate in "regular" environments or being trapped in self-contained worlds.

We learned the value of child locks on car doors and the speed of Joey's legs when panicked. We discovered the value of fifteen minutes in the search for a missing child. Our world has been dominated by the fear of the bolt.

We also got to see the President. We went to the beach, the zoo, and even DinosaurLand. We didn't let fear bring us to a grinding halt.

We look forward to getting on track in 2011, and moving on to bigger and better. We hope you'll join us in our adventures!

We started off the rails and ended on. Unless we get a shock - wouldn't be the first time but I'm not expecting any surprises - at the report cards next month.

Hope things get sorted.

Happy New Year.
