Trip to Monterrey and Mexico City
We stayed with one of Chris' EdTech colleague/friend's house who works at ASMF. Brian and his family have a fun compound out in a preserve area called La Huasteca which was beautiful and fun. ASFM looks like a really fun school. Our boys had wide eyes walking around in such a big space and with so many kids. It's much bigger than what they were used to in public school, not to mention our boat school situation! I attended a couple of sessions on Dyslexia and met with the specialist to discuss my questions about Josiah's dyslexia. SUPER AMAZING BLESSING. We are new to navigating this world, and I'm trying to learn as much as I can to help he and I be successful in it.
Of course we ended our trip with a Costco run, where we constantly questioned how our food WEIGHED rather than how much it cost. We came prepared with a duffle to pack 50 pounds of food in it. Because 3 boys. They eat. A. Lot.
This is what Valentine's Day looks like this year

We ended up missing our connecting flight from Mexico City to La Paz so we had to stay a night in CDMX. There is beautiful architecture that I've studied in the past that went straight to the top of the list when faced with "what do we do for just one night?" There ended up being a big festival representing all the Mexican states that was so much fun, right outside the cathedral I wanted to visit.
Of course no post is really complete without a dose of Opal.
She was super excited for us to spring her from her doggie spa in La Paz
