You just never know what the next hour will hold




This past Autumn, we enrolled E'beth in a tiny tots gymnastics program. John is in an advanced boys class and we thought it would be great for Elizabeth to have her class at the same time etc etc.. She was doing very well until....

One class I saw her slip off the end of the low balance beam. When she landed she began to cry. I went to get her, and couldn't console her so I took her out of the room and attempted to soothe her. Still nothing. This was not normal. She was hurt.

We were able to get her to our Ped's office prior to them closing and x rays confirmed a fractured bone in her elbow. She was a trooper and asked many many questions about taking pictures of her bones! She told her story to all that would listen to her new saga!

The plan was a temporary cast until the swelling went down, then she would get a very special one! :)

Elizabeth is SO beautiful! Even with that pitiful little cast on. She's a trooper, that's for sure.
