The aftermath

Here are some pics of my broken ankle/tibia after they took the splint off, this is 2 weeks post op. It looks bad, but really is healing better than expected! I am now in a leg cast and have a bivalved wrist cast. I am doing well, and trying to make the best of all of this!

Due to some severe injuries from a fall I wont be posting too much in the next few weeks! It is hard to take pics with only one good arm!

The kids recently made pine cone bird feeders. They were so excited to see birds come and eat from them. Ironically these pictures were taken while the kids were napping. But at least we now have proof that the birds have found us! The first two pictures are of our tomato that the kids have named Mr. Stripey. It is the biggest tomato I have ever seen!

Coopers Rock

We recently took a trip to Coopers Rock for James's research group picnic. We had so much fun, the kids thought it was a really neat place. I have always loved Coopers Rock, and we could not have had a nicer day to hike and hang out with friends!

Water Bugs

The kids have become quite the little swimmers this summer. In the last two days, Fletcher started jumping off the diving board, and Sophia is now swimming without her floaty suit! She is amazing! We are so proud of them!

We spent the day at the park today. We played on the playground and then hiked over to the nature center to check out the wildlife. The kids had a blast, and are not worn out!

Graduation 2010 take two!

This was an exciting year, Sophia graduated from preschool and I graduated from nursing school! We are on to bigger and better things!

Graduation 2010

Sophia graduated from preschool tonight. She was very nervous but she pulled through and sang her songs and danced like a pro. We are so proud of her! GOOD JOB SOPHIA!

He is just too cute!

Hells Angels

Fletcher finally has mastered bike riding, he just cannot resist wearing orange from head to toe and he wonderful green sunglasses! He is just too funny!

Sleepy Head

Sophia just does not want to go to bed without me lately. She usually ends up on the couch right next to me until I go to bed! Some nights it is aggravating but she is just to sweet and when she falls asleep she is just so beautiful!
