Because we don't do boring

Well, Mr. WG took D. to camp yesterday. It was eerily quiet in the house. Just two children. Why, we could have fit everyone into a sedan! I had big plans. I had a big deadline yesterday, so I did my work. I figured that over dinner, I'd talk to J about how he wanted to spend today and tomorrow -- I had a bunch of different options for our mornings out. The plan was for me to take the boys till about 1 pm, then come home and work while the housekeeper took them to the pool.

So, OF COURSE, yesterday, while J and baby A were at the housekeeper's apartment -- she's moving, and she had to sign some papers, and she took the kids with her -- J was running around, and he fell. And he refused to bear weight on his leg all last night. And this morning. And all day. We got an appointment with our friendly orthopaedic surgeon and went in for an x-ray.

We don't actually see a fracture on x-ray, but he's in so much pain, and the refusal to bear weight indicate that there may be a fracture we just can't see yet. So we're in a cast for a week, then we go back for a repeat x-ray and go from there.

So.... yeah.

On the bright side, it looks like D is adjusting pretty well.

I asked why he was wearing his button-down shirt -- which is really for shabbat. Turns out that this morning, he first dressed in a regular shirt, then found out they were going to shul (synagogue) for shacharit (morning prayers) (Jews pray three times a day, morning, afternoon, and night.), whereupon he insisted on changing to his "button shirt" for shul.

My friend, who is the camp psychologist, and the wife of the Head Counselor who emailed last night, texted me that we may need to rethink his wardrobe -- what with 3 visits to shul daily, he may need some more button shirts.

You know what? It's a good problem to have.

So glad he is doing well. People always tell me to send my son to camp H but right now he just turned 5 and the thought of sending him away for so long is scary...maybe when he is older, like 25 :)

Never a dull moment...looks like D is having fun, hopefully J's summer only improves from here!

In addition to these attributes, many coins also have intrinsic value based on the type of metal they are made of. The value of the coins are directly tied to the amount of silver inside of them. The Doctor told Mama that every bone in his body was broken. The top number tells you how many beats in the bar, and the bottom number tells you what kind of note gets one beat. No matter what you do, it is nice to have a few silver coins to admire and show to others like objects of art.
