A Day in the Life of Jordan

So today has ended up being a great and fun day for Jordan. Since Scott was off on saturday and today, we had more time than usual to get things done around the house. On saturday we did all the cleaning and planting we needed to do. So today after Josh's therapy Scott decided to take Jordan fishing. To say he was excited is a huge understatement. He was bouncing around the 5 minutes it took for Scott to get the fishing gear all loaded. Here is a couple pictures Scott took of him this morning.



Then this afternoon my dad called and told us there were some Military F-16's at the Ogden Airport. I guess one of the jets blew a tire while landing and crashed and shut the base down for landings. So they flew into Ogden Airport to wait for the base to open up. So Scott hurried and took Jordan out to see them up close, since my dad can get him on the ramp. He was sooo excited to get to see the jets that fly around all day long here... up close and touch them (his words). When they got out there one of the National Guard men let Jordan climb into the cockpit. Jordan was a little scared to go up the big ladder, but he did it. And he was so excited. All he could tell me was about the yellow lever (ejection lever) and how you aren't supposed to touch it.





So I think Jordan got to have a pretty fun and eventful day. I was so glad, he really needed some fun. He kind of gets lost in the mix here at times with all we do for Josh, and then dealing with Trevor. He just needs some alone time with us and it's hard to get that. But he had a wonderful day and was so happy. It makes it all worth it!

I am so glad you are feeling better. How cool that your son got to do such fun things today. It was so nice out, my kids could have spent the entire day outside. Hope everything is going good!

That looks like it was a very fun day for Jordan! I am glad he got to have some fun time with Scott. That is so cool that he got to get into the airplane. It does help when we have connections; like dad.
