Just Being a Kid!



For the first time in months, Caleb felt like going to the park today.  We found one where no one else was playing, to avoid all of those winter germs.  What a joy it was to play Cookie Monster again & chase him all over the place.  It was surprising how quickly I could catch him, as it used to be more of a challenge, but just so nice to see him up & moving for once.

It was MORE than joyous to hear Caleb giggle.  He's taking so many types of chemo, he just doesn't feel like laughing anymore.
Cal also got to go to a radio appearance I made this morn.  Only a handful of DJ's were in the entire skyscraper, so that was a "safe place" for him and served as a fun outing, as well! 
Cal waited patiently for his chance at the mic :)



Caleb's hat says "Life is Good".  Today, it definitely is.  I realize now how much I used to take for granted those little smiles & the prevalent laughter in our home.  It just came naturally before cancer.  We have to work harder to make him smile these days, but we know that prayers are the main reason we get days like today.
