"Back to life, Back to reality"

Zach and I have come to the reality that vacation is not reality. After our lovely visit up north where we were able to enjoy 2 1/2 weeks of real winter, we've returned to the grind. (Well at least Zach is back to the grind, I'm back to the full time chase.)He is in full swing preparing for his doctoral exams next month and I'm back to piano teaching, and full time mother, daughter, and wife. Hope you enjoy some of the pictures that we took on our trip to Boston. (Gabe doesn't actually know how to play chess, he just likes the idea of playing chess with Pop-pop)

It ain't no joke, its broke!

On the day we were packing up to come to Boston, David Hyrum took a spill and tumbled down the stair case in Raleigh. He had a big goose egg on his head but he stopped crying after about 5 minutes and took a nap. After he woke up he wouldn't crawl though. His wrist wasn't swollen or discolored so I thought it was just a sprain. When we got to mom and dad's house he still wouldn't crawl so after Christmas we finally took him in and had our fears confirmed that it was broken. The cast only has to stay on for 2 1/2 weeks and he has been a trooper through it all. He even knows how to army crawl with his bum arm. Poor little guy, I hope this isn't a permanent trend!
