Jacob's trip has been amazing so far!
Wednesday was a long day of travel, but Jacob handled it so well. We were so impressed with everyone at Tucson International Airport and Delta Airlines who helped getting through security and on board as easy as they possibly could. Jeff said that at each airport, they were greeted with kindness at every turn.
Thursday morning started off with a Breakfast of Champions! Jacob got to meet Miss America, several celebrities, and Disney Characters. Later that day he enjoyed a parade and seeing some of Walt Disneyworld for the first time!
One night he got to meet Bill Engvall and Mark Wills. Mark Wills gave a concert for the kids! Jacob was jamming out and singing all the words to 19 Somethin', and Mark came down to Jacob and let him sing the song with him! It was all Jacob could talk about when he called that night!
I'm loving the little updates that I get from Jeff, Caleb, and Sarah, but I can't wait to hear all the stories when they get home. I REALLY can't wait to see the video and photos!
Yesterday was a free day, and they had a great time going on rides at the park. Today was a special pinning ceremony and then more fun at the park. Tomorrow they will travel on a chartered flight to Washington D.C.!!
Thank you for all of your prayers! Jacob's health has been stable, he's tolerating these long, crazy days really well. We would love for you to continue to pray that he does well, and that the next day of travel will go as smoothly as his first one did.
I'm including a few photos, but there will be more to come! Thank you for cheering Jacob on as he represents Arizona and especially the children of Arizona who benefit so greatly from the amazing work of the Children's Miracle Network....that's what this is really all about!
