Pins through the skin and bones
Speaking of soccer, both injuries occurred during soccer practices. Both were just a slip with a bad fall; something that could have happened simply playing tag. I managed to break both my collar bone and my ankle when I was little, and I didn't really play any organized sports. So despite all the jokes about "maybe it's time for your family to give up soccer", I'll continue to support their endeavors, and I look forward to watching my older son finally get back into the game he loves after missing all spring and summer. Sports injuries happen, and fitness is important. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we've endured our share of broken bones for a while...
In the meantime, we're working on how to handle school. We begin the Tuesday after Labor Day, so we'll have to scramble to get some accommodations in place. At the moment, we're finishing his summer work via a collaboration style of his dictating to me what to write. Unfortunately this requires a great deal of patience on both our parts--something we are short on at the end of summer. I've also purchased this "Writing Bird", which may hopefully allow him to write a little with his immobile hand.

So...2015, where are you?
