Cast on...Cast off...Cast on...Cast off.

On Monday, I took Eve and Ann to the Orthopedic Doc office. Eve got her cast off and all is well. She is still sore and limping a bit, but she'll recover fine.

Ann is another story. She broke her arm in two places not just one. One in the radius bone near the wrist and one in her wrist. Joy. She is casted now.

When we explained what happened we conveniently left off the part where she jumped from a tree onto the trampoline. We just said she was jumping on the trampoline. I figured with two kids in casts I was going to get enough stink-eye from the doc without adding the whole extreme trampolining to the mix.

He didn't say anything about having two kids in casts in such a short time, but he did mention his extreme dislike for trampolines. But come on, have you ever met a doc that liked trampolines? Didn't think so.

On another note, I made granola bars yesterday. How homeschool of me! They're quite good. I'm proud of myself. They have almond butter in them instead of peanut butter. I bought the almond butter with the greatest of intentions of eating only healthy stuff, but honestly? It was gross. It went in the granola bars. Also I included crushed peanuts, shredded coconut, raisins, sunflower seed and all kinds of other healthy stuff. Yeah, me! Now my kids can go to our homeschooling co op on Thursday and pull out their homemade granola bars! Maybe it'll make up for all the bags of Doritos and Oreos they've had all year. And maybe they'll distract the other homeschooling moms from noticing all the casts?

You're funny...and we think alike! You go homeschooling granola mama! Here we actually call such people "Granola Heads"- do you use that term there?

I thought this was going to be a knitting related blog entry. Hope your girls heal up fast from their trampoline breaks.

Sorry for the misdirection Aisling. I was being a little punny... :) I was also thinking of the old Karate Kid movie; wax on...wax off. Wax on...wax off. Wax on...wax off...

I really need to get out more. :)

YAY for trampolines! I'm a big fan too. Know what you mean about the almond butter as well. It always tastes better in stuff rather than by itself.

When Josiah broke his leg on our trampoline, the first doctor we took him to told me he HAS a trampoline!!! He must be a realist. He has 3 kids, kids get broken, might as well let them have fun! :-)

Homemade granola bars are yummy. I love almond butter! You don't like it?
