Today we met Bryce and Nathan at Peter Pipers for some pizza and arcade fun.
He loves the dump truck game. This game is a major token hog.
Love that little hand trying to reach the puck.
And yes, Shaun the Sheep did join us for some arcade fun. He hung out on the back of Caleb's wheelchair.
Shooting some baskets.
Nothin' but net on that shot.
Benjamin is very dangerous with skee ball. That kid had balls flying everywhere. He has a super strong arm...but not the best aim.
Bryce, Caleb, and Nathan.
The boys were so busy doing their own thing that this is the only pic I got of them together.
Our same boys...just much younger. Bittersweet.
This afternoon Caleb had horseback riding.
I just want to brag on him a bit. Caleb doesn't like to be up high and he doesn't like unexpected noises. So being on top of a large animal that can neigh or sneeze without warning is out of his comfort zone. Starting horseback riding again after such a long break from it has cause some anxiety in Caleb. He was very anxious this afternoon as we were getting ready to head out for his lesson. We had a long talk about it. I told him that it was okay to be nervous but that sometimes we need to push past that nervous feeling. We talked about "Wheelz" (you fellow SB parents know who I'm talking about) and how nervous he must be when he is looking down the mega ramp getting ready to zoom down it to land another wheelchair back flip. I also told him to talk to God when he feels nervous like that and to pray for peace. He even said a short prayer in the car before we got out to ride. By the end of our talk, Caleb had mostly pulled himself together and was ready to ride. I could tell that he was still anxious but he pushed through. I was just super proud of him for being brave, for stepping out of his comfort zone even though he didn't want to. Love that kid.
