I am here

It has been a crazy two weeks. Sam's arm did have to be pinned. He fractured his elbow into FOUR pieces, and the doctor operated on his arm exactly two weeks ago today. Panicking at her baby being hurt, my mom flew out the Saturday after that. We had her here until this past Tuesday. It was really heart wrenching to see her go. Sam's pins get removed in a couple of weeks. The doctor said that his elbow is healing really well and there should be no problem with the joint as he is growing up. Ben and I were REALLY relieved to hear that.

Other than that, there has been no more excitement. I can live with no excitement. No excitement is good. We postponed the beginning of our school year until after my mom's visit. If I can get everything ready, we should be starting up next week. Sam was happy to hear that.

Oh, wait. I lied. We did have a little excitement this past Monday. Sam lost his front, top left tooth. The tooth fairy was way more generous than she should have been for a third lost tooth.

Meanwhile, Lucy has figured out that she can make very many facial expressions. She is so funny about it.

She has also discovered the joys of shopping from home. It doesn't matter how you are dressed (or not dressed as the case may be).

I think I have seen your name pop up a time or two on Dy's blog. I'm glad you enjoyed my "Young Love" post. The quote at the top of your blog is interesting! I guess it has proved true for us:o)

I enjoyed looking at these pictures of your kiddos. They're all so adorable! I especially love the one with your little girl looking up like she's deep in thought about something.

I hope Sam's arm is doing better now. My oldest dd's pelvis was broken in 5 places last summer and had to have a plate and screws put in it. She got them out last month. It's hard to see your child go through something like that, but it was amazing and faith affirming to see how God worked in the situation and that He truly does care for us.
