A Broken Arm & The First Day of School

Wow, I feel like I am actually getting caught up on a lot of the Summer. Go Me! haha. I have so many more things to blog about but at least I have covered the most important things that have happened this Summer. 

At the end of July, Talan went to the park with our babysitter while I was at work. When they got back the babysitter came out to get me (for those of you that don't know we have our office at our house but it is seperated from the rest of the house) She told me that she didn't know what happened but he was complaining that his arm hurt. 

What?! You don't know what happened??! What were you doing then? Sitting there on your phone?! 

I didn't say any of this...but I was thinking it of course. 

I asked Talan what happened and he told me. "I wanted to go on the monkey bars and no one would help me so I did it myself and I fell on my arm." Talan is not a complainer and he doesn't cry over many things. He didn't even cry at all but I knew something was wrong. He was just sitting on the couch holding his arm and telling me "Make is stop hurting mommy" So off to urgent care we went. He had xrays and it showed a fracture in both wrist bones.Luckily it wasn't near the growth plates. So they put him in a splint and referred us to the Orthopedic Surgeon. We went there the next day and they put him in a cast for 30 days. 

This put a huge damper in the last few weeks of Summer Break. Talan handled it like a champ though, I am so proud of him. The only thing he really complained about was how itchy it was.

Anyways, I had to fill the back story about Talan's arm because you will see him with a cast on in these next pictures, from the first day of school. 

The boys started school at a different school this year, one that is a lot closer to our house. Like I could literally throw a rock and hit it. I love it. The boys love it...what more could you ask for?

I couldn't have planned this one better with the bus in the background.

Walking down the hall after dropping off Talan in his class.

I can't believe my baby is in school! Time is going way too fast.

And last but not least, here is a picture of the Xray of Talan's arm after they took his cast off.
I don't now why it is sideways and blogger won't let me fix it...but if you look closely you can see the white on his wrist that is the calcium deposits where the bone healed. Kind of cool looking!


  1. Oh sad! I broke my arm when I was little and it was no fun, and super itchy!

  2. Poor lil guy! Probably makes em tougher tho huh?

    Cute 1st day of school pics!!
