9: The kids played during the service and reception. The kids came up after the service. Jaedon joined Jennifer, who was sitting at a table talking with Sister Nina. Jaedon caught his mom's attention, and with concern, asked "Were you OK being up here without us mommy?" Sister Nina could not believe the compassion and care that Jaedon, at only 3 1/2, displayed. But, this kind of awareness of others is very typical for Jaedon. Justine was feeling good, so her cute curls and smiles were charming everyone.

Heading to the window.. here is what I saw. Jaedon was SUPER happy! He was actually steering. Alan just ran the gas and sat back. Jaedon was steerling like a pro! Turning around trees and shrubs too. It was Jaedon's highlight of the trip. Jenn.
76: Dave took Jaedon and Justine out for a boat ride. It was the first time both kids were away from Jenn. Their time was limited by the need to bail out water seeping in through cracks. Over - The only thing Angus wanted was a picture of him with his grandkids. But, Justine wasn't having it without mom. And even then, she couldn't stop crying.
