An Interesting Afternoon

Project 365 - June 9

We visit with our friends Rod and Cynthia on Tuesday afternoons. Cynthia and I are working on her wedding scrapbook, with a goal of completing it by her anniversary in August.

While Cynthia and I play with papers and pictures, it falls to Rod to entertain Jed. Sometimes I feel sorry for him...Rod, that is. :D

But today Jed had a brainstorm....he took Doodle Dice, which as you already know, is the most awesome kids' game EVER.

It was a hit! Rod won 2 games in a row.

Jed kept talking about how lucky Rod was. It didn't seem to occur to him to wonder about that, considering he was rolling for both of them. :)

Maybe it was that head injury he sustained in the wheelchair accident earlier in the afternoon.

Rod had suggested to Jed that he take the manual wheelchair down the ramp into the garage...great fun! Then, in all his five-and-a-half-year-old strength, Jed wheeled back up the ramp for another run, and that's when it happened...the wheelchair tipped backwards and spilled him out.

I tried not to laugh, but it was hard. :)

I was kidding about the head injury. But I think the incident was a good experience for Jed - a small taste of the difficulties and indignities Rod and Cynthia live with on a daily basis.
