We all had an amazing time visiting my sister and brother-in-law in Columbus and exploring the Columbus Zoo. The boys devoured every moment and have not yet stoped talking about what they saw and the fun they had. There’s nothing like the feeling you get when you see someone you are close to but haven’t spent time with in a while. Distance will do that to people but it’s amazing how we can pick up right where we left off.
I noticed something in Theo yesterday, about his personality specifically, that I certainly need to emulate more and more. Theo when walking up to an exhibit or enclosure didn’t understand why he couldn’t move past the barriers and get as close to the animals as he desired. Most of the times he didn’t even see the glass there. He wasn’t fixated on the fence and what was keeping him safe but instead fixed on the animals: his goal. We spend so much of our time asking ourselves should we instead of making the commitment and asking how can I. Theo certainly was asking the right question and left his safety up to his Dad who always has a vigilant eye out for what’s best.
