Benjamin breaks his arm....again

Because things can never just be boring around here....Benjamin broke his left arm. Again. Broke the ulna and radius. Again. I swear these kids are trying to kill me or at least give me more gray hairs.

He fell off his scooter Wednesday evening. I didn't see it happen but I heard him scream "My arm!" and I just knew. Once again, I freaked out, froze, screamed and cried while Glenn sprung into action. I don't know what it is about broken bones but I just can't deal with it. Benjamin was far more calm and brave than I was. As I sat rocking him in the grass while Glenn ran home to get the van, Benjamin kept saying "It's okay mom. It's just a broken arm, don't look at it." Bless him.

He stayed overnight at the hospital so the orthopedic doctor could set the bones and cast the arm first thing the next morning. He did great. Didn't shed a tear.

Enjoying a well-deserved popsicle in the recovery room.

He was sore and very tired yesterday but slept almost 12 hours last night and woke up this morning feeling better. He is such a trooper.

This isn't exactly how I wanted to start our summer break but at least we managed to get one water park visit in last week.





I have to share this picture. We went to Bryce's 12th birthday party last weekend. These 3 boys have known each other since they were about 2 years old.
Bryce, Nate, and Caleb.
