Harkin had an incident at the mountain where he fell getting off the chair lift. It was heartbreaking to hear him cry in such pain and to be in continuous pain. Broke my heart in too many ways, since ultimately I am the one who is suppose to protect him and I did not that day.
He was carried down the mountain in the sled from ski patrol. Then I took him to urgent care. He had it put in a hard splint for three days before it being put in a fiberglass cast. The first few days he was uncomfortable and basically sat in our bean bag chair. Then he figured out how to scoot himself around so he could play all over the house. He was such an amazing little man through this all.
He had the cast on for two weeks and is now in a walking boot for a week or so. He is hoping to still get in a few more skiing days before winter's end. Right now we are in the midst of spring time weather so we need more snow first.
I am sorry my sweet boy that this happened but thank you for having a good attitude through it all.
After getting a new phone in December of 2016 I tried to be better and take more photos with it than my last one. However, I failed to get them off the phone and onto the blog. I have decided to post a Friday photo to flashback from the year 2017. There are just too many events that I missed with my DSL camera.
December 22, 2016
It started with presents from her brothers. Harkin was so excited to "read" the book to her and help with the numbers. He's an expert, you know.
Then Landon came in with his. Issabelle was so very grateful to him, giving big hugs. It was all so loving. William waited until the afternoon to give his. She was so happy to have a new sticker book!
She wanted to go skiing so that's what we did. (pictures coming soon) The weather was beautiful. Sunny skies and temps in the 20's. We did jumps and trees and worked on our turns. She was so excited to have all of her brothers there.
We wrapped up around 3:00, came home and opened more presents and then had a breakfast dinner and chocolate cake. As you can see from one of her presents she loves bacon and eggs and that is what was what we made, with potatoes too. She is a good eater this one.
Then she ran around crazy with her new skirt on, played with some of her new toys for a bit and then crashed pretty hard. It was a fun day and can't believe it is already 3 years. Time is slipping away but I am trying to hold onto each moment every day.
