Two concussions and a broken nose

Those are our injuries in the past two weeks with the boys in football. Tommy took a hard hit and had a mild concussion in his game last week, then Ryan got his bell rung in practice. He was pretty out of it and I started to take him home, then turned around and went to the ER. He was swelling up at the top of his nose, between his eyebrows. Turns out he had a mild concussion, and probably a broken nose. Apparently, they don't do anything for a for those, unless he has problems and needs surgery when he is fully grown. He will probably have two black eyes as the swelling drains, just in time for school pictures.

Labor Day Parade

We had quite a crowd to pass out information cards for Tom at the Cantaloupe Festival parade on Labor Day. This was before Nathan's and Adrienne's families got there. It was a very successful parade and we had a great day with the cousins after.

I was a little surprised to see how much taller than me Tommy has gotten, but notice his feet!

First Day of School

Lots of new things on this first day of school, Lauren started at the high school, Ryan, Alyssa and I were all moved to a new elementary school, so that was new for us. But at this point, two weeks into the year, everyone is doing fine, despite this nervous-looking picture.
