Three days with a 4-hour flight each way to Chicago. I had thought it was just going to be a rushed trip, but Randall ended up making the most of it: watching “Thomas” videos on the plane and at the restaurant, going to Millennium Park and visiting the Aquarium… This guy had so much fun that he kept saying he wanted to go to Chicago again.

Tennessee Valley

What did the sea say to the sand? Nothing. It just waved.

DSC00571Randall went on his first hiking trip in Tennessee Valley together with his best buds. “Going to the beach for a picnic”, an expression from one of his favorite books now came true. It turned out to be such a wonderful experience that he kept saying he would like to go back again. He also appeared to remember every detail about it. “The sea hit me, and I slipped and then fell down on my bottom,” recalled Randall later that night. He smiled when he said the word “hiking” to himself.
