Ok, here is another story. It is very hard to keep track of everything. Not an excuse, just a reminder. I'm not sure exactly what happened but JRP decided to stay back. I think it was after Thompson Falls or so? I was very upset. I even had a Tom Hanks ( Cast Away ) moment where he realizes his volleyball is gone. You know what I'm talking about. I was terrified about having to tell Kellen. So I waited and after a couple of days he asked how JRP was doing? I had to tell him," I can't find him and I am real sorry." I was expecting him to start crying and get upset and get mad at me! As I braced for the worst, the loving spirit of a child came through for me. He says, " dad, don't worry about it, Jr. Puppy actually knows how to servive in the wilderness. He has had experinece in the wilderness before. He can take care of himself." I was blown away. Days of extra weight off my shoulders with just three lines from my son!!!!
I think we as adults seem to over think and complicate things. Thanks for keeping it simple Kellen!! I love you and I look forward to seeing you soon!!!!!!!! Love daddy
