Lil' Chris makes a new Soccer Buddy:)

Tonight we had another Great Strides meeting and afterwards we went to the walk site to get some ideas for where things are going to go, etc. Then after that, I took the kids for a walk on the path, and then we stopped to take some pics. I wanted to get some pics of Lil' Chris in his CF shirt at our CF walk site since he won't be there for the walk. I don't want to risk him catching anything, esp with this swine flu going around.

I got a couple of pics with him and Ayla, but then a little boy came over and wanted to play with Lil' Chris. He let Lil' Chris play with his soccer ball. He was dribbling it pretty good, but of course I didn't get that on camera:( He was so funny, he could only kick it if it was on the path, not in the grass;) He did such a good job, he even was practicing his throw-ins!! ;-) lol

Anyway, I got talking to the little boys mom and she was apologizing for her son, but I said "No, he's fine! It's actually really nice seeing them play together! This is the first interaction he's had with another kid in a long time." Then I went on telling her about his CF and the walk and how in the winter we don't let him out much. She was very understanding and was telling me about a walk that she did at that same site!

Lil' Chris was SO happy to be playing with another kid...it just broke my heart, b/c all I could think about was "Is that kid sick? Is Lil' Chris going to catch anything? Tomorrow he is probably going to wake up with a cold and it's going to be all my fault for letting him get too close." I tried not to think about it, but it's hard! I don't want to have to worry about things like this! I want him to be able to do whatever he wants without a care in the world!

So, I took the chance and let him play with the little boy and held back my urge to say "Ok get in the car!" I'm so glad I did! He had SO much fun chasing him around and playing with his ball. He even gave the lil' boy a hug...it was the cutest thing(of course I missed getting that on camera:(

Lil' Chris didn't want to leave the little boy, but when he finally did, he kept saying "Bye bye, bye bye!" So cute:)

Now lets pray he doesn't wake up sick tomorrow;-) lol
