Day 183

I feel like a good mom today.  I was contacted by a woman with a gifted son who was meeting up with another woman with a gifted son and they asked to meet up with C and I.  So having met neither of them in person, C and I ended up in a Mini Cooper convertible going up a beautiful canyon up north.  One mother is a lawyer from Long Island, one is a bombs specialist from Maine and they have done expansive research for their kids.  I am only beginning the journey, but I watched all three boys play and find fossils in the foothills and discuss things that are way over my head and I saw how happy C was.  I rode in the back of an old pickup through pockmarked dirt roads and climbed and descended a mountain today and I mean literally as we hunted for fossils.  It was a complete adventure.  I had no idea what to expect, only that I needed to reach out and see what the world holds for my boy.  It's a bigger world than I realized.
