October brought a first for the Brown household... our first broken bone! Lily got tripped and fell at PE one afternoon and after several days I realized she wasn't using her left arm. She was holding it down at her side and when I asked her to raise her arm, she couldn't. After a quick trip to see Dr. Morrow, the X-ray showed that she had broken her collarbone. She had to wear a sling for three weeks and was out of PE/recess for over a month. She was quite a trooper and after the initial annoyance of having to wear a sling, she hardly complained.
Since Lily can't do anything active right now with her broken collarbone, she has been doing a lot of coloring and drawing. One night while Parker was at baseball practice, the girls sat out on the porch and visited and drew pictures for over an hour. It was so sweet of Eden to join Lily since she couldn't swing or jump on the trampoline.
Eden was so excited to lose another tooth!
I loved Eden's answer on her science test!
It was painful, but I voted! It will be interesting to see how this election turns out here in a few weeks!
