A Crazy Week
My great uncle passed away this week. He had a long fight with complications from diabetes, just like my grandfather. We have to visit the funeral home this evening to pay our respects. I really hate that this occasion is how some extended family gets to meet Caleb for the first time. Any prayers for our family at this time would be greatly appreciated. My great uncle's wife is also not doing well at all. She is hooked up to a ventilator and is expected to be on it for the rest of her life.
I told you this has been an eventful week! Ryan had a boat bottom job this week. He was actually painting spots on the bottom at 8:15 last night! He was determined to get the boat in the water today and it was launched around 9:00 this morning! The guys he works with really hustled this week to get it done. I'm sure they are relieved to see the boat in the water!
Since this had been a heavy blog, I want to post something really cute that Caleb does. In the mornings, Ryan turns on monster truck racing while getting ready for work. Lately as Caleb has started paying more attention to his surroundings, he has locked in on monster trucks in the morning! It's getting to where he tries to turn his head to see the TV while eating a bottle. For once, this child is interested in something more than food! I think he likes the bright colors and sounds of the trucks. He is definitely taking after Ryan with the love of anything with an engine! Here's a picture Ryan took yesterday morning:
