Joe is becoming good friends with a girl named Leah. He has known her for a couple of years. They have taken swimming together at MSU and they have played on the same T-ball team for two years. This summer we have made an effort to get the kids together. On Friday morning Leah was dropped off at our house and the two played together--ALONE--for a couple of hours. I peaked in on them every 20 minutes and they were having a great time playing games, listening to music, playing with cars and at the end of the morning putting on a puppet show. This was the first time (in over 7 years) that I have been able to leave Joe for extended periods with another child and not intervene or interpret for him. And how did Joe sum up his time with Leah? "I just love Leah. She's fun."
