Caleb & Rolex

March 31st we took Caleb to Concordia, Kansas for training for his new service dog. We met Rolex, a one-year-old border collie. Rolex is still very much a puppy, but he is working well with Caleb. We are hoping that with some time, Rolex will help Caleb calm down before he gets too agigated.

Today Caleb didn't have school and he was building a house. Becuase, as he tells me, "I'm a good builder." Caleb wanted Rolex to go in the house. Here's a picture of Caleb and Rolex in the house.

Caleb's favorite number is 17. When we are watching a race Caleb always roots for the 17. It doesn't matter who the driver is, all he cares about is whether the 17 is going to win. Well, tonight while we were watching, the 17 crashed. Caleb didn't take a nap today and was extremely tired. Because the 17 crashed, Caleb started crying. This crying lasted for almost 30 minutes. I finally got him to sit down in the chair and got Rolex to get on his lap. Here is a picture of Rolex sitting with Caleb after helping him calm down enough that he could actually fall asleep.

We have known your parents for several years (through Kiwanis) and always look forward to meeting up with them at the KI conventions. This year your mom will be with us in Orlando. She sent us your link.

We will continue to pray for all of you. We hope that Rolex will have a lasting effect on Caleb, and perhaps on Cassidy as well. Take good care!
