You Make My Heart Sing

This is yet another Great Escape layout. There was a fountain that would spurt water up at various times from random spots. The boys thought it was hysterical. I wish I could capture the laughter of that afternoon on a scrapbook page.

At first Caleb was on the outskirts just watching Zach. He knew that water was not good for his power chair. After a minute Dave said, "Come on, Caleb! Let's go get your brother!" He wheeled right into the middle of the fountain and Dave figured out which spouts were going to spray when so he could get Caleb out of the direct spray of the water. He did it in a way that Caleb did not realize what he was doing. Dave was so conscious of how much Caleb is left out, and he was determined that wasn't going to happen.

When I was thinking of the page title I remembered how happy I was to see both boys doing normal "little boy" things. It's hard to explain, but it actually feels like my heart is swelling - getting bigger as I feel joy bubbling up from the inside. Now that Dave is no longer physically here with me, I realize that he made my heart sing quite a bit, especially as I watched him being "Daddy". I really miss that feeling.

Once again - had to layer those puffy cloud stickers - and I love the effect.
