A pretty good day
I have no photos to document yesterday. I only have words to remember it by. And that is okay. I can remember that it felt like summer yesterday. With my kids outside building a dam of water in the gutter with rocks and leaves and old gutter debris and sticks. They had good days at school, played together and were happy. Peter went to scouts and then to football practice. Caleb had a soccer game and it was great! Such an intense game with the ball going all over the field and Caleb made the saves that he needed to. The game ended at 0-0, which for anyone else that may be a let down but come on! My boy did not let the other team score, that is a win for us. Then we came home and Caleb and Peter both passed off some scout stuff before going to bed. I felt very accomplished going to bed. However, at 11:30pm William awoke to some serious stomach pains. It was so sad to see him in such pain. But as I sat with him cradled in my arms, I found a chance to count our blessings. I was singing to him and he was calming down. We said a prayer, Rob gave him a blessing, and then I sang some more to him while he fell asleep in my arms. I am so glad that I was able to be there for him last night. To help him feel less scared and sad, to help him feel loved and be there when he needed me. He is such a sweet boy! I am glad I was able to be there for Caleb and cheer him on. I am glad that William was able to be with Haley during the game and they are buddies. I am glad that Peter is such a different personality than the rest and he finds his own ways to be happy and entertained. I am glad that Rob is there by my side and is my helping hand. It was a good day.
