because that is one of Terry's favorite rides. She had been going to take Allie, but I asked, "Why not Nike?" and she responded, "Oh....why NOT Nike!" with a smile. He was great for her!

AhD and I were quite surprised to find the ball fields FUL L of students having fun, playing football, rugby, running, and even archery (and shooting in our direction!). The archery coach noticed us stopped on the dirt road ahead of the students and indicated for us to go forward. I knew the students had put their bows down and I WAS indicating AhD to go forward, but he was frozen in that spot. WAY too much unexpected and noisy stuff going on! I knew better than to push him hard, so I let him think about it for another moment. The coach indicated again for us to move forward with "You can go!" but I was thinking, "No, you don't get it... I can't!" but I didn't say anything, just nodded my head a bit at him while I was communicating to AhD that everything was A-Ok. Finally AhD was good to go, although tight as a wire. He settled in once we were past all the ruckus. And, no, I don't have any pictures of that episode!
