Broke the same wrist

But, the doctor said they were not related at all. She fell off a zipcord and broke her right wrist. So, no piano or violin for 5 weeks. No sand at the beach. :-( But, we did pay $30 extra for a waterproof cast which is waay cool. So, she can swim in the pool!!
Anyway, here she is waiting to find out if it was broken. Then the result.
Poor poor baby... :-(

And they are Green. She is so cute in them. I was afraid she would look so much older, but for some reason, it just looks like jewelry. That's what she thought she was getting, too. She was very very excited. She is having pain today, though....

VBS & Swim

This is our 7th year taking swim lessons with Ms. Carol. It's a two week slam of lessons everyday for 2 weeks and this year we had Vacation Bible School during one of the weeks. So, with Stan out of town for a that crazy week, we were very very busy. Although tiring for mommy, the kids did fantastic and enjoyed themselves and learned many things. Lots of wonderful discussions with them.

Below are pictures, notice Ainsley's missing teeth. She lost #5 and the tooth fairy made a visit. Annnnd, Potty Training, Mumsie's Birthday, Fathers Day, Cleaning the house (AHH, HA HA HA I don't worry about that one), Laundry, T-shirt Surgery (VBS Shirts - notice Ainsley's design - all her idea), God Daughters Birthday Party, Long awaited Playdate and Swim Meet... I reeeally need some extra sleep. ANYWAY!

We took lessons with our cousins. It was so fun seeing them everyday.

Here is Lexiloo doing the Survival Swim. If you are ever stranded in water, this allows you to float along with the water/waves while resting your body and taking a few breaths. Tough, but she did it!

Munger River

So, we had a big, beautiful and baad storm. I'm currently typing on my laptop at a La Quinta Inn as we are on our 3rd day with no electricity. The storm was amazing to watch actually, but we were lucky all things considered. Just lost power... Although, our street flash flooded and the water rose so fast. It covered our sidewalk, and came up into our yard all around. We couldn't see our retaining wall.

So, as we all stood on the front porch, wondering if it was going to get higher, we looked around and Stan had dissappeared!! All of a sudden, he comes downstairs in his bathing suit, ran next door and borrowed the guys raft. Well, the rest is below......

Then, he did it again...

Okay, we're off to eat the continental breakfast and go swimming....
