Yesterday was a better day we had a spirit hockey game to go to a local OHL game. It was a cops vs fireman game nicely nick named guns vs. hoses. It went well we took along one of nicks friends and his mom they had never been to a game before. They moved here from florida a few years ago and are just getting new to the area. We have plans to do alot more things. The boys got to go into the blue line club room kind of a VIP thing. My friend julie works with cops n kids and got us the tickets for free. Cops n kids is a program by us that does alot of community events cops presence are there to put a good face on them to the kids to overcome prejudice kids hear alot about cops especially in poor and violent areas. They gave all the children books and they also had the k9 dog there. Anderson eye associates gave away aviator style glasses to everyone who came the boys liked that.
Here are some pics from last night

Things went well during the game and afterwards they had fireworks set up. That is where nick lost it he began crying he cannot stand the sound. At first I got irriated but then I had to check myself once again reminding myself that this was one of many things I will miss out on doing because I have to put him first. I know it sounds selfish but there are alot of times I pass up doing things because of his fears. But he has to come first I know that so I calmed him down in the bathroom had a talk with him and we went to the post game party in the blue line club.
There the boys played air hockey and got to meet the players and get their programs signed by the hockey players. I got alot of pictures. It was just another day with a friendly reminder of what my life is like with him and the things we will have to continue to over come. It was a small obstacle but again a reminder. I felt bad for cameron he had to miss out but it was his choice to do so he understands nick and is a great friend. Not many kids understand nick so I feel very blessed to have the ones we do.
We had a wonderful time that night and I am so grateful to have the time share with him. I like doing these kinds of things. It gives me a sense of normalcy amonst the chaos that seems to surround our lives.
