"Everything Changed Today Mom"

Those were the words that Zack said to me when I picked him up at school today. Oh great...what happened? What now? As my mind is racing wondering what he means by that, he reaches into his pocket and pulls out something that has been attached to him for the last two years-
His Lucky Bracelet!!

It has finally broken and I can't say that I am broken up about it! You see he got this from his 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Wilder. She gave one to all of her students before the State testing for good luck and he has never taken it off! All the other students took theirs off after the testing was done, some even before the testing started. Not Zack, he has kept his on for over 2 years! It has become a part of him. He wore it always! Just a sample of some of the pictures of it on in the last two years. Every picture we have of him has the bracelet in it!




Junior Olympics


Aspen Grove - Vacation

As you can see from the last two pictures, he has a thing for bracelets! Not only does he have the lucky bracelet on but he has the family camp bracelet from Aspen Grove on. He would keep those on until they finally fell apart. Such a funny kid! But now his wrists are bare and I am sure he feels somewhat naked without something there. And then after the bracelet fell apart today at school and came off, he ended up getting his finger on that hand jammed during basketball. Maybe the bracelet was lucky??

I love his sentimentality! That is so endearing! I hope he keeps that forever!

That was a cute story... you had me in suspense the first paragraph. I'm impressed it lasted 2 years!
