This weekend has to be in the all-time Top Ten. Rick and I had such a good time at Prospect Hill. It goes without saying that the food was incredible, and we always enjoy the hot tub and the fireplace, and the weather was wonderful. Saturday we went into Charlottesville and did a lot of looking and shopping. Got Zack's big Christmas present, ate at one of our favorite lunch sites (Bodo's Bagels), hit Barnes and Noble (got this terrific knitting book, can't wait to try it) and Starbucks -- in general, had fun doing normal things but with just each other. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend.
Of course, coming home to Zack was wonderful! He stayed with our friend Shannon, who he just adores. Zack got to help Jake carve a pumpkin, but when Shannon got his hands in the "goo", he wasn't excited! Since Zack has Sensory Integration Disorder, he majorly avoids touching things that are sticky/slippery, so we've been working with him to get him over that. His OT he sees once a week has been such a help, and Shannon, being Zack's preschool teacher as well as a close friend, makes sure he works through things as well.
