Skateboards & Broken Arms




Will broke his arm - he was skateboarding down a hill . . . with the sprinklers on! Sooo we casted his arm on friday - the great news is - they make WATERPROOF casts! I was so happy with the way the doctor took care of everything. So if any of you ever need the name of a good Pediatric Ortho just call me (hopefully you will not every need one - but just in case). Its so weird to see him doing everything that you're not supposed to do because you're in a cast. We had a primary activity on Saturday and they were slippen-slidden and he still played. Kinda Fun!

Anyway - the boys have been taking skateboarding classes through this kid named Logon. We have taken classes from Desert Devils through their indoor skate park and a 5th Street Roller through Gilbert Parks and Rec. I think my boys have learned more from Logan in the one week then they did when we took from the other more expensive places. There were girls in the class too. He now has a web-site and will be doing classes this fall. Even though Will broke his arm from this - we will be taking him back. He has a web-site up now … and Tucker is in one of the pictures - way cool! Check him out.

Brydon thought it was the coolest cast ever! I'm thinking these two boys hangin' out might be a scarey thing since Brydon is my child with the most injuries! J.k. Thanks for letting Will hang @ the Horne's! We think he's a cool kid!

I heard about those classes. I think my boys would love that! Bryson broke his arm this same time last year. We were so happy to have the waterproof cast. It made a huge difference.

I am so sorry. We have been through a few broken bones in our family and it is not fun.
Your blog is soooo cute. Good job.
