a real amazing wonderful miracle!

Yesterday was full of fun! Cale was having a hard morning/afternoon, I think just tired from such a crazy long fun-filled weekend. We were in the bedroom together and I had told him to come out when all his grumpiness went away and then I walked to the kitchen. He must have thought this hilarious and a good opportunity to turn me completely red…

All of a sudden Crystal burst out laughing and then everyone followed. I was a bit confused and as I stepped around the corner-there was my husband walking down the hall…wearing my bra over his clothing. Oh my goodness.

I darted right back in the kitchen; stood for a minute shocked, and then turned Cale around and we headed for the bedroom! Haha...uh…

It’s never boring around here-no joke.

After all the laughing and our late breakfast of pancakes we headed to the park to feed the ducks. Cale had a huge smile when he first started and even tried quacking at them! :) Ciera my youngest niece also loved it! Once all the bread was gone and we were getting ready to all head to the car, a bird pooped on my head and all over my arm. Like I said, it’s never boring around here!


My brother surrounded!


About the time that we were ready to go swimming and have some water fun, Cale was tired. We grabbed some lunch and then they dropped Cale and me off at the house so he could rest and they headed to the water park. That gave me a little bit of time to do some research on a few things and get Cale refueled for all the evening fun!!

Once everyone was home again, it was time for PT and want to know what we did?! We rode Go-Karts!!!! Not just the family-but CALE too!!!!! This was something that Cale loved doing before the accident. He always loved racing and used to watch Nascar a lot. Once Cale was all seated and ready to go, they gave him a few laps by himself to see how he was going to do. I cried…like, blubbered like a baby!! Once he took off, more tears came! After his first lap, I watched him whip around the turns and it looked just like Cale before the accident. He had no disability suddenly; rather, he was right in his element!

Before our helmets...


My nephew Mark getting Cale all buckled up!


My niece Caitlin already to go!


He's Going!


While we were trying to get set up to go and join him, he had already done several laps and then pauses and shrugs at us pointing to the track, wondering if we were going to join him! Haha! Once all 8 of us were on the track, we all had a BLAST!! It was um…can’t think of a good enough word to describe the feeling of racing with him…amazing!!!! :)!!!!!!!!



I was super impressed with him and how great he did! We will for sure be doing more of that! Might need to do a car wash for it though! Haha!

It was such a fun last day with our family, but we very much wish we didn’t have to say good bye to them! This morning really early, we took them to the airport and had a time of hugs and tears. Missing them a ton.

My niece had to have these flip flops because she said it made her look 6 years old ;)


With so many of us in the house and going every which way this last week, the house is slightly messy and unorganized. We also desperately needed to do some grocery shopping! Mama and I were gung-ho about getting everything together today, but were also extremely tired. We started out good, and managed to get groceries while Cale was in therapy, but then we fizzled a wee bit and both of us ended up lying around the TV with a movie marathon!

Tomorrow is another day for that!

Isn’t it crazy that he was go-karting?! Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!

When we were telling his therapist today, he was so excited all over again. Love it! :)

    Woo Hoo! Well who doesn't love go karting right? I think it is so awesome that he was able to go and know what to do..Sort of like riding a bike right? I am not even going to touch the bra thing LOL... And I already told you about the bird conditioner..Ha ha. It is so great that you have so many things to laugh about and keep you grounded in all of this..
    We love you.

  2. WOW!!! Cale, you did GREAT. I am so proud of you. Uh, Kathleen....unless I am mistaken, those are geese, not ducks. They say honk, not quack. Maybe that's why they didn't comunicate so well. :) I have to agree withyur neice, her feet look at least six years old. I love you guys, and continue to pray for each of you. Marion
