Luke's broken bone

Monday night Luke fell off the bench at dinner time. (Cassie was in his chair). We ended up taking him to the Dr. on Tuesday afternoon, after watching him all day. He wouldn't lift his shoulder or use his arm much, just kept it tucked in close to his body. And he was asking for help more often, getting up and down, going potty. He really seemed bothered by it if you touched him or moved his shoulder- not very cool when your kid starts crying and yells "don't hurt me mommy!". So we saw the Dr. and he sent us to get x-rays. The next day we found out that he had a broken collar bone. Poor guy. And right before vacation:(. That puts a damper on swimming and some of the other activities we were planning on doing. Oh well. There's nothing they really do for broken collar bones (unless they break through the skin) so he's in a sling for the next 4 weeks and then we'll go back to the Dr. to get more x-rays to make sure he's healed ok. Night time seems to bother him most now, so we give him Tylenol and hope he cab sleep a little better.

Ten years ago today!

Happy anniversary to us! One of the happiest days of my life full of many memories. Ten down, an eternity to go!

How we beat the heat

Well, besides staying indoors all the time!

We got a pool everyone can be in- boy is it nice! It takes a long time to fill, and after about an hour the water isn't cold anymore, but Luke warm still feels better than the 95*+ temps we've been having. Luke really enjoyed it, Cassie was ok until she swallowed a bunch of water- then she preferred the tiny baby pool. They like going down the slide while wet and pretending to have picnics at the table. I think next time we fill the pool we will do it on the patio, since it extends to the fence, so it will be in the shade most of the day!

Playing games and eating raspberries

Michael and Luke playing Chutes and Ladders. I love how excited Luke gets.
Cassie eating raspberries, I love how she wears them on her finger like you would an olive!
