The ups and downs of the week:
1. Kids celebrated warmer weather with dodge ball on the trampoline. When Brynn kicked the ball out of the weeds, a good-size splinter of twig went in her foot. It was visible alright but too deep for me, or our helpful neighbor to remove. The next day it was red and swollen so off to the doctor we went, where they numbed and removed the foreign bodies in several pieces with surgical tweezers. The nurse did quite the wrap-up job as you can see.
4. More fun features about my camera. This is the sister Kate has always wanted. Speaking of sisters... We are getting a new one in this family! The easy way! This school year we will be hosting Sofie, age 16, from Denmark. Everyone is very excited. She seems like lots of fun and we are going to welcome her right in!
5. And finally, Cannon's nose has decided to have random bleeding episodes quite frequently this week. He is getting very good at knowing just where to pinch his nose to stop the bleed.
