these kids. . .

this little guy is growing up way too fast- talking, running, and doing everything on his own!! Loves anything and everything to do with balls!!!

this big guy is almost as tall as his dad. His love for his siblings just brings tears to my eyes.

this girl wants so bad to grow up! She is turning into quite the athlete- basketball was great and now we are moving on to volleyball. A girl after my own heart!

this little girl is fearless! Rides a 2-wheeler like she was born doing it and the other day crossed the monkey bars all by herself!!

She is so confident on the court this year- so much so that she is giving the refs a hard time :) (She may get that from her mom)

the story of the boot

2 weeks ago this Friday, I received a call from the school nurse telling me that Jonathon had fallen at lunch and hurt his ankle. Now, just so you know, I am a hard nose mom- "ah, you'll be okay" kind of mentality. Side note -this is the same day my husband surprised me and took the day off so he could take me on my first trip to IKEA. We were on our way home when we received the call. Back to the story. When I went into the nurses office, I was thinking sprain and wasn't even planning on taking him to the doctor. The nurse strongly suggested we have an xray done, so Les took me and the little ones home and took Jonathon to the urgent care for an xray. Well it is broke. He broke his fibula (the small shin bone) where it meets his growth plate. He came home with it wrapped and in an air cast and on crutches. I was shocked! Then I started to feel bad because I wasn't even going to have it checked and it is broke!! Well the next morning, after Ella's basketball game and before Grace's basketball game, Les took Jonathon to the Ortho Urgent Care (didn't even know this existed!) expecting to get a cast. He actually got the boot. Because the fracture was stable, he could just wear a walking boot. It is heavy and he is very LOUD when he walks (his foot is a size 14!), but it is so much better than crutches and a cast. The most frustrating part of the whole thing is he had to miss the last week of basketball season. Hopefully he heals quick and he has no problems with it in the future.
