New Lid

That's right! We have a new lid. For those of you who are not up with modern lingo think of it as a cool hat or nifty helmet. I'm actually quite proud to have my son wearing the lid out in public. I think you will understand what I mean once you take a look at the pictures. We decided to have Keegan's lid painted by an artist in Humble. The artist actually does custom paint jobs on motorcycles. We had a chance to look at some of the other helmets he's completed and I have to tell you our design is rather simple. But simple is not a bad thing. Take a look and let us know what you think. If you don't like it, too bad, but you have to appreciate the fact that the entire helmet is hand painted.

After we visited with grandma and grandpa Sanders we ran over to Gymboree to return an item that was too small for Keegan. While waiting in line to pay, Michelle struck up a conversation with the lady in front of her. The lady turned around and looked at Keegan and his Lid, but it was not a pity look but an "oh my gosh he is so cute", look. I truely believe God placed that lady in line at that exact time so that she could say those exact words. It was our first time to be in public with Keegan wearing the lid and God made it a great experience. If I wasn't proud already, I was definitely walking taller when we left the store.

The doctor said Keegan will have to wear the helmet for two or three months. Not that long when you think about how fast this past year flew by. In my opinion, Keegan has always been an over-achiever and will be out of the lid in a couple months. I guess we will have to wait and see. Check back every week or so for an update and new pictures. Gig'em! - Jonathan

What a blessing to have had that encounter! Keegan looks adorable in his lid. Love the paint job. Maybe he and Jackson will be Aggie roommates one day.

He looks absolutely adorable in it!!! Really, I was smiling at how cute he is! And class of 2029 is so funny and great! Glad you went with that design. Although you could have gone with the proud Patriots design of DBU Michelle!
:-) Just kidding.
