This is a story of boys, basketballs, and hot rods. It's a good one too!
Kalani, (number three boy) plays basketball.
He has practice sessions with Tanner, a boy from the varsity basketball team (and a friend from church). One day, Tanner was scheduled to pick up Kalani, and I was out running an errand when he picked him up. When I came home, I was searching the house and couldn't find Kumaka. I asked my boys where he was. The answer? "Tanner took him to practice too!"
MELT. MY. HEART!
When Tanner pulled up with my boys, I watched as Kalani took Kumaka out while Tanner pulled the wheelchair out of the front seat of his hot rod.
It blew me away. Most boys wouldn't want to be bothered with a five year old, much less his wheelchair...ESPECIALLY in his hot rod...but not Tanner. I told him he is my new hero.
The grin on Kumaka's face was priceless.
The example Tanner is setting for my boys is invaluable.
I love these boys!
