The Call Has Come

After a long wait for the mail to arrive, it finally came about 2:30 p.m. Brayden had been anxious all day with a number of text messages and calls wondering if the mail had come yet.

When school got out, he called again and it still hadn't arrived and he was on his way home. It arrived about 10 minutes after our call. I left the package in the mail and went to grab the camera. As he arrived home, he started towards the house, not even going to the mail box. As he caught a glimpse of me with the camera, he lit up and ran towards the mail box. He was so excited!

When that white envelope comes, it is such an overwhelming mix of emotions. Where he's going, when he's going, the treasure that has been talked about and thought about his entire life. Brayden has so looked forward to this day, and wow, it's here!

His friends Zach and Jake were with him. They all decided to help kill the waiting time for the opening by going to play some dunk ball.
