Thorin Captures NYC

This past weekend we went to New Jersey to visit Liz Peck (a.k.a. Grammy Peck) Pop-Pop, Nana, Aunt Gwen and the cousins Fiona and Mada. We took Thorin to NYC for his maiden visit. It was a 4 hour visit which at 8 years old –plus some sensory challenges– 3 and a half hours too long. He did take photographs for approximately 15 minutes which is when he was the happiest. (titles his.)

If you could only do one thing in Battery Park I would recommend the Sea Glass Carousel. It’s like a spiritual experience or maybe just watching Thorin enjoy it from another seat is.

It’s time to go:

  1. This is a great blog. I was a special education teacher for five years and paraprofessional for three years and worked with adults with developmental disabilities for ten years. My son has Tourette syndrome so I can relate to some of the issues you raise here. Your pride in your son and celebration of him is evident. Oh yeah…once upon a time, I went to school with Ward at Gettysburg. Glad that he and his family is doing so well. -Jeff Eckert

    • Hello! Thank you for your kind words. Yes to pride and celebration– I’m am always happy to hear it translates. Ward says: Hi!
