Chadd stayed in India between January 23rd to February 24th with 1st grader, Hridya and her family! He traveled to Mumbai and a popular tourist destination Goa.

Hridya and Chadd got to experience the Indian flag hoisting on The Indian Republic day.  They got to be a part of singing "Jana Gana Mana" (The India National Anthem).

Chadd goes Down Under with the Chow Family!

Over the winter break, Chadd got to visit Australia with the Chow Family!

Chadd had a great time visiting Sydney's Circular Quay where the Opera House is located. It was 102 degrees on this day so they were glad to be on the water! Here is 4th grader Natalie with Chadd on the north shore. You can see the Harbour Bridge in the background.

Chadd enjoyed visiting the giraffes and other animals at Sydney's Taronga Zoo this week.

Here is Chadd at Newcastle beach, about 150 miles north of Sydney. Weather is beautiful and surf is cold but refreshing!

Chadd goes to Florida with the Condelles Family!

Chadd goes to Florida with the Condelles Family

James (3rd grade), Rebecca (1st grade) and William (age 2) took Chadd on an early holiday visit to Florida. Their first stop was Disney Springs in Orlando where he met the enormous Lego Dragon and took a ride on the carousel with some festive friends.

The next day's adventure took them to Legoland in Winter Haven where he went to Lego driving school with James and met a life-size Lego Santa Claus, made out of thousands of bricks.

Chadd then traveled north to Sanford for a stop at the Central Florida Zoo. He got to help feed the giraffes lettuce and met a Chadd look-alike on another carousel ride. Later, he went for a walk at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs to see their one mile long holiday lights display and got to meet the Grinch who wished him a very Merry Grinchmas!

Chadd also spent a day exploring nature at The Springs in Longwood, a beach and swimming area connected to the Little Wekiva River. His favorite part was watching blue herons, egrets and other birds swoop in to catch fish.

On his last full day in Florida, Chadd headed to Disney World's Magic Kingdom. He went with Rebecca to meet Disney's newest princess, Elena of Avalor and watched Cinderella's castle transform into a glittering ice palace for the holidays at night. It was a wonderful trip! 

HUGE THANKS Condelles Family for taking Chadd along!
