Jack and Katie got along very well on the trip. Actually, they interacted in new ways over the last couple of weeks. Katie continues to grow, and shows great compassion towards her brother. She is fantastically kind when it comes to sharing even the best of treats. She also has a patience with him that is remarkable for a 4 year old, understanding easily that he needs a hand to get down the stairs of the RV, or that we might need to wait for an elevator in a crowded place because we are using Jack's wheelchair.
Jack has started to initiate more play with Katie. In this photo he is reaching out to tickle her foot, and I just happened to turn around and catch him before she reacted. They spent quite a bit of time playing "tickle fight" with toes a-flying, and Jack was almost always the instigator, gently tapping Katie's toes until she responded, mostly with shrieks of happiness.
