Today I walked with Adileen to school. Slowly. Her preschool is just about 14 blocks from our home, a distance I can walk briskly in 12 minutes or so, but a distance that at Adileen’s pace usually takes between 25 and 30 minutes. Special thanks to Katie, who discovered that Adileen could walk the whole way to school holding her hand while I was on a trip recently. There’s part of the walk where 5-foot sections of the wall are painted, each in a different color. I was filled with joy watching Adileen run to one, shout “Azul!”, and move on to the next, shouting “amarillo”, and “verde”, and “rojo.” So. Fun.
Happy halfway through 2018 to all! We're rapidly approaching winter break, and the Peru Day (July 28th) and Arequipa Day (August 15th) festivities that go with it. The Blairs are getting ready to travel back to Peru, and the Daggetts will be stateside for all of August and the first nine days of September.
