The Day Before School

Today is the last day of summer vacation for the girls. Tomorrow they'll start 6th and 3rd grades. Their outfits have been chosen, bookbags have been packed. They are really looking forward to it. Then, this happens.

Yep. Erin broke one of her fingers.  So we spent the morning in the ER getting that taken care of. No gym or recess for a week. She'll have to wear the cast for 6 weeks. How did it happen? Well, Alvin shut the lid to the toybox on her finger. Broke it clean in the middle part of her pinky finger. It was black and blue and swollen within minutes. So, needless to say, she's going to be missing out on a lot over the next few weeks. However, she'll be the center of attention in class. I'm sure of that.
