Surely, if you read this blog, you know that Ian loves trucks. No, Ian is obsessed with trucks - especially "big rigs." This afternoon, a wonderfully thoughtful farmer friend of ours showed up with his semi and Ian was absolutely beside himself! He was simultaneously thrilled beyond comprehension and terrified of the horn and something so big being right in our driveway. Fortunately, they called ahead so I got a video of him as it pulled into the drive and another one when he was in the cab. He got to blow the horn multiple times (sorry, neighbors!) and take a ride in it. He has not stopped talking about it yet and I'm completely sure that right now, he is dreaming of it. In case you wonder how a non-verbal child talks about something so amazing, he continually points to the driveway and chatters away. We know exactly what he is saying!
