Summer Starts With A Bang!

So it's been forever and a day since I blogged, but I'm back! We are officially done with 3rd grade (more on that tomorrow), finished with baseball for the season, and as of last night, finished with missions for the summer.

Whoooo-hooooo! Welcome to summer!

Except that Jeremy broke his hand on Tuesday night. 

He slipped on some water that Macy had dripped on the kitchen floor, and slammed his left hand into the door frame of our bedroom. He toughed it out on Tuesday night thinking that maybe it was a deep bruise, but by Wednesday morning it was super swollen and so painful that Jeremy couldn't move it.
I took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with a boxer's fracture. You can see it on the left side of his x-ray below. It's the black streak in the middle of the bone between the bottom of his pinky and his wrist.
He was put in a gutter cast (which he can take off as needed), and will follow up with another x-ray in 2 weeks. Thankfully it was a clean break, and no visit to an orthopedic was necessary. It wasn't exactly how we wanted to start the summer off, but it could have been much worse. We have a beach trip scheduled for the end of June, so we are hoping he will be 100% by then. He has been a trooper, but it is no fun having a broken bone. Please keep him in your prayers.

Mother's Day Weekend in Review

We had such a great weekend! Jeremy's parents came in from Hattiesburg, MS to watch Jackson's baseball game on Friday night, and Jackson ended up making his 6th home run of the season! His team lost the game, but we were so proud of our ball player! Saturday morning Gigi and I got up with the boys and went to pick strawberries, and they were so good! We finished almost 2 full buckets this weekend. Strawberries from Wal-Mart can't compare to strawberries picked right off the bush! Saturday afternoon we headed to go watch the Montgomery Biscuits and see Jackson be the Alfa Honorary Bat Kid of the game. This is his 3rd time, and he always has such a good time. He gets to play catch on the field before the game and throw out the first pitch. He did great and we had a wonderful time at the game. It was so nice getting to spend some quality time with Papa and Gigi, and the boys were in heaven!
Sunday after church the boys and I headed to Kellyn and Jason's lake house and spent the afternoon swimming, boating and tubing. It was the perfect end to a wonderful weekend, and Anderson was so worn out from all the fun that he fell asleep on the ride home with a 1/2 eaten chocolate doughnut in his hands. I call that a success!

Enjoy the pics!
