- Landen's Response: "it is cool"
Isn't that an awesome response?! When I wrote that question down, I didn't know how he'd respond but I guess I wasn't expecting that. I was expecting it's hard sometimes, or I feel left out sometimes, or what have you. I guess I shouldn't be surprised really, for as proud as I am of Olivia, I'm equally as proud of Landen. I know it's not always "cool". I know there are times he feels left out. I know there are times he hurts. I know there are times he's sad and it's very hard to deal with. We talk about it, we muddle through but from his response I gather that the times "it's cool" far outweigh those times when it's not. What an amazing big brother Olivia has!
Thus Landen signed up and will be climbing in the 2016 CF climb this year. If you'd like to donate to the climb in support of Landen, please visit his CF Climb Page below:
