Here We Come Summer

I have some end of the year photos, K4 graduation pics, and our long weekend at the lake. It's been a busy start to the summer. Craig and I had 2 busy weekends away before school ended and then 2 days after Craig's official last day, we were off to the lake house to spend some time with my family. It was a very relaxing way to cap off the end-of-the-year craziness! Now swim lessons have started, along with Drew's baseball games. Kelsey is supposed to have ballet/team auditions on Monday but she is very protective of her injury so I'm not sure how willing she will be (and she is SUPER shy about talking about her broken clavicle - she will ask me to tell people what happened when we are about to see someone who doesn't know or if we are in a group).

Yay! Onto K5

Last day of school

getting rid of the sling and now wearing the immobilizer. we have another appt on July 5th and we will see what the x-ray looks like and HOPEFULLY she can start doing things again

We spent 4 days up north on a chain of lakes with my extended family. LOTS of boating, fishing, swimming and fun:)

Master fisherman

Of course he had to drive the boat!!

Pretty good for a self-timer ipad photo

More Grey Hair

It's sort of a rite of childhood...breaking bones, getting stitches. I think my brother fell down the stairs, broke his collarbone and his arm all before he was 5! Kelsey and Drew were goofing around on the couch, doing this thing where they turn upside down. Somehow Kelsey jumped or bumped into Drew while trying to flip upside down and came crashing to the floor pretty hard on her upper arm/shoulder. I was pretty convinced she broke her clavicle by the amount of pain she was in and the guarding of that whole side of her body. It was just me and the kids and we were about to take Drew to baseball practice. Kelsey did NOT want to go to the doctor but the pain didn't get better and she wouldn't even let me touch it. So we headed to urgent care, which was a surprisingly quick process. We were home by 7:30 pm and went straight to bed. She slept through the night and Craig said she woke up ok. She'll push through. She's my tough cookie :)

Thankfully no surgery, just a sling for a couple of weeks. She did well with school and resting and icing it. We will see an ortho doc in follow up next week and see what our actual restrictions will be for the rest of the summer.

Drew has been the best brother-helper too. He will get all the doors, carry her backpack, help her take her shoes off. I thanked him for being such a great helper and he said, "well yea mom, I'm the big brother now." Ok kid, just keep being awesome.

Even with a broken clavicle, she's loving the camera!
