Vacation Part 2

By Day 2, Katya was a lot more settled into the idea of traveling instead of being in school. She did beautifully the rest of the trip for the most part, and truly seemed to enjoy it in spite of the many changes in her routine, new places, new faces, new foods and new experiences. All the books we had read to her ahead of time as prep to try to help her understand what a vacation was all about seemed to have been successful! ;-)

 She kept herself occupied in the van with activities.


She cooperated with our picnic meals.



She enjoyed smelling flowers.


She liked the water and the rocks.


She liked all the extra time to snuggle with her family members too!

And once at the cabin on Lake Superior, Katya absolutely loved running out to the balcony each morning with her siblings when they woke up to look out over the lake!
