but here are a few more.
Isla’s boyfriend is Elliot. He is four and she thinks he is amazing. When they are on the boat to school together she turns around and puts out her hand and says “touch me.” When he comes over to our house she says “Elliot can share my toothbrush.” She holds his hand, she always sits close to him and/or stands close to him. He is so polite to her but he really wishes she would leave him alone. Every once in a while Isla gets so aggressive with her feelings that Elliot hauls off and hits her. She cries for a while, but then she gets over it. How do we teach her that she is not supposed to chase but be chased?
Dear Santa and Reindeer,
I hope that you travel safely and do not land in the water. We are going to Costa Rica for Christmas and hope you are able to find us. We are staying at the Volcano Lodge. After Christmas I hope you get to go to Disneyland. I have been good this year, but sometimes I hit my sister. I will try better. I wish for a space shuttle with a large cockpit to fit a headless horseman in.
Dear Santa and Deer at the North Pole,
I have tried to be good this year, but sometimes I pee pee in my class. I am trying to be a big girl.
P.S. I wish for a butterfly for you.
This thanksgiving I have to say that I am thankful for the fantastic families we have met here. There are two families that we seem to be gravitating towards and that is the two Red Frog families. They both sailed with us on Zach’s birthday and one is a very good photographer. Thank god she took these photos. Zach’s blond hair returning, Joe’s really long hair and my hair in ponytails says more than anything I could write. Thank you Diem!!!!!
