So, I had a totally different post planned for this week. It was actually going to include some homeschool updates. Things have been going really well in our homeschool, and 7th grade is moving along pretty smoothly. Co-op started last week, and Emma loves it.
Then, our week got crazy! I was working in my office Wednesday afternoon while Emma played outside with the neighbors. I had the windows open since it was a beautiful day outside. I love hearing the kids giggle and squeal and call to each other as they’re playing.
What I didn’t expect to hear was our neighbor, G, running up to my open window to tell me Emma was hurt. She fell off her scooter at the end of the street, and she wanted me to go check on her. Ummm… I don’t check on 12 year olds that fall off their scooters. I told G that Emma was a big girl and could walk home on her own. I’d help her clean her boo-boos when she got home.
Emma came in with a scraped up elbow and ankle. She also complained that she couldn’t bend her wrist. She said she was in excruciating pain. So, I called our doctor who told us to go straight to the ER.
I prayed the whole time that it would just be a bad sprain and we’d be out in time to make it to ballet class that night. I needed it to be no big deal. That, however, was not the case. 🙁 Emma broke both bones in her wrist.
So, for now, she’s wrapped up tight in a soft cast until we can see the orthopedist on Tuesday and get a hard cast. No dance. No playing outside. No doing much of anything until Tuesday.
She’s in pretty good spirits, but she’s tired. She’s having a hard time sleeping in an semi-upright position. She’s scared to sleep in her bed, because she’s afraid she’s going to roll over on her arm. She’s not hurting too bad, though, as long as she stays still.
In other news, though, Isaac got an internship with one of our local senators. He is so pumped! He starts Saturday. This is just one more rung up the ladder on his way to becoming a future politician himself. I’m so proud of him!
What’s your weekend looking like? Got any big plans?
