Advocating with Grace

We here in the asylum love us some Disneyworld. Our first trip was two years ago, and unfortunately ended with Storm being expelled from school two days after we got home.

We planned the hell out of our second trip, and made the mistake of telling the kids months beforehand. It raised Storm’s anxiety levels and he had a rough time in school leading up to the trip.

Once there, though, he made some strides that were unexpected. He rode Splash Mountain (once) after some begging, and even rode Test Track. He left his 3DS on the plane (I got it back at the airport when we went home), and had a major meltdown until I promised to get him a new one of we didn’t get the old one back. The strangest thing? He greeted the characters and asked them questions, and then posed for pictures.

I am so proud of him!

He also participated in the Jedi Training Academy, and blew us away with his maturity.

Unfortunately it took a couple of weeks to get back in the swing of things, but he has made great progress from the first time.
