And boy do I tip my hat to you. I can't imagine the patience and kindness you and your husband must have. All that boy energy! On an airplane!

You've combined my two passions – Special Ed and travel into one! As a long-time Special Ed teacher, I've always advocated for travel. I think kids learn more from travel than in any other environment – and  not just "school stuff" either. As you found out. Good for you for pushing on!

I'm so glad that travel has been just what your son has needed to blossom, although I'm sure it's not just travel – it's also having parents that are responsive to the benefits and challenges that travel will bring for him. Thank you for sharing.

I am so impressed with how you get ALL FOUR CHILDREN to happily pose for pictures. I think you need to write a post about that next!

I like that you have a dream to travel, and you keep on going, knowing that your son is being stretched for him to be happy.
Such an amazing family.
Cheers
Lisa
