Luke is officially a man now.
Until last night, he was the only male in the family to have his original, God-given bone structure intact. And I think he was a little embarassed about it.
But, anyone acquainted with Luke knew that his days as a fracture-virgin were numbered. All it took was a late night tee-ball practice, a dare-devil move on the climbing structure and a pair of slippery sneakers.
Snap! Broken humeris and his initiation into the Broken Bone Boys Club was complete.
We're very proud.
In another health-related story, Jake's upper braces were removed yesterday. Fifth-grade girls everywhere are reporting heart palpitations.
(You haven't seen his retainer anywhere, have you?)
And, finally, I am happy to report that Emily won the flower arranging contest sponsored by her school! She will compete in the district competition later this month. Her brothers were not impressed until they heard about the grand prize: $200 cash.
Now they think it's the coolest thing you can do around here...without breaking a bone.
