Last week…..Caleb, my youngest boy turned five years old.  We started the day with a choice….he could stay home with me….and go to his photo shoot ….. or go to school with his sister….he chose to stay with me… i knew he would.  He was SO excited to go on our photo shoot ALONE….apparently in his mind he feels that there are not enough pictures in the world of him ….ALONE…ie … without his pesky big brother or his “tag-along” little sister…..ImageImageThe morning was off to a fantastic start!  We went to drop Chloe off….then we came home and got dressed to the nines for his shoot…..headed to the square in Fayetteville and let the day lead us!  We walked around the square……climbed and jumped around the water feature…..threw lucky pennies into the fountain and made wishes….and came back for some more time at the water feature….Caleb LOVED the water feature…in fact he wanted to run around it and jump one last time before heading to Bliss for his Birthday Cupcake….and by this time Donald had joined us so we didn’t see the harm…..

Pass number 4, jump number umpteen….and the unthinkable happened…..he landed on a slanted rock…the rest was slo….MO……….he wobbled forward, he wobbled backward….he wobbled forward again and then his right foot slipped….it seemed like he catapulted backward off the rock…..arms and legs outstretched toward the rock…..he slid down the rock on his back IN TO THE WATER……and disappeared……..and as suddenly as he was gone his arm came up Donald grabbed him and pulled him out!

He swore us to secrecy……surely Cory and Chloe could never know!  We agreed……that quickly went out the window when we got to school to pick Chloe up…..he told her and she told EVERYONE!

He laughs now.  AND we do too.  A 1000 terrible things could have happened but by the grace of God the only bruise he got was a bruised ego and a memory that will last a lifetime….Happy #5 Caleb we love you forever!!!!
