Just to Keep Life Interesting

Everyone crowded around to watch Honeybee get her splint.

Honeybee fractured two bones in her arm at school last Thursday.  She broke her humerus and ulna, both close to the elbow.  Unfortunately the fracture in the ulna appears to be in the growth plate, so we are scheduled to see the orthopedic surgeon on Monday.  Oh boy!

The weekend was relatively calm.  Russ repaired broken drawers in the kitchen, hung my shadow box which had fallen, organized the barn, and generally enjoyed Saturday.  I spent the day organizing things, cleaning out the freezer, running errands, and cooking.

We went to a great church service today and had a big family dinner with everyone but Sweet Pea, who we missed.  Now Russ and I are tucking the kids in bed and getting ready to enjoy a little bit of quiet time before the new week begins.

Honeybee wrote some more thoughts that she said I can share with you.  I’ll get them up tomorrow — just as soon as I can.

Giveaway winners, your books will be in the mail Tuesday morning!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Oh dear! I'm so sorry, Honeybee. Lisa, I'll be praying for you as you take care of your girl.

    Is she right-handed?

      Of course she is right handed — we always do things in the biggest way possible at our house 🙂

    Ugh! So sorry, no fun to break a bone. The notoriety at school is fun for a day or two, but otherwise, a drag. Feel better Honeybee!
