After breakfast and a short nap, Caleb decided he wanted to go outside with his dad. So, he got dressed & went outside. He sat in a chair in the garage keeping his dad company. He stayed outside for over 2 hours! It may not seem like much to others, but it was HUGE to us. It's been a struggle just to keep him awake, much less outside.
We got a call after the football game was over to let us know that they won the game!! Each child received a trophy and a ring. We were told they even called Caleb's name out over the sound system even though he wasn't able to be there. Coach Cassidy came by to deliver Caleb's trophy & ring to him. He wasn't real thrilled about having his picture taken, but he did it anyway.
We met with some friends about 2pm at a Pumpkin Patch. We'd never been to one before and were all looking forward to it. They had loads of wagons there, so we were able to load Caleb into a wagon & enjoy all the sights. We enjoyed snowcones, kettle popcorn, a hay ride & a couple nice picture moments. The other kids even convinced Caleb to get out of the wagon to go through a hay maze. He was wiped out by the time we left, but had a great time. We enjoyed a quiet dinner at home and both boys were asleep by 6:30pm!
Sunday, we went to church. He didn't want to go to his class and sat in the lobby in Daddy's arms for almost the entire service. We were blessed with a bunch of teaching materials on healing from a member of our church. After church, we came home, ate lunch & the boys took a nap. His Uncle David & cousin, Miguel, came to visit for a couple hours. Then we met with some friends at a "Trunk or Treat" at a local church. Caleb wore his Transformer Bumblebee outfit & Caden went as a duck. We enjoyed seeing all our friends from my MOPs group (Mothers of Pre-schoolers) and the Early Learning Center Caleb went to (and Caden goes now). The boys got a boatload of candy, ate cotton candy & popcorn.
All in all, a very good weekend indeed. We've been so pleased with the amount of activity Caleb had this weekend. We're looking forward to reducing the steroids again in the morning. Hopefully, his appetite will continue to stabilize as well.
Well, it's late and 4:30am comes very early. Thanks so much for all of your prayers & comments. We love hearing from you. May God bless you all!
