So today Madison got to spend a few hours at Carpinteria. The sounds and smells of the ocean have always been memorizing. Madison's blind friend Kierra (sp) demonstrated to her that if you close your eyes and use your other senses, amazing things can happen. While on a hike up to the cross, Madi stopped walking and said "just close your eyes and stand still for a minute". The volume and scents were amplified... the sound of the breeze blowing through the bushes, and the scent of nature. Today was that kind of day... a good one. Pictured below, Madi, her cousin Hannah, and Angela.
Tomorrow, planning on church and after that, she'll hear which way the wind is blowing.
