Sam's Clavical

These are pictures of what I have been up to the last few days. Now, I know some of you know all the fabulous things that my NIKON D50 can do but this is NOT one of them! :)

There's never a dull moment in our household and this past weekend was no exception. We were visiting a church in our area and the boys had gone to Sunday School. The teachers gave them a break to go outdoors and play for a bit and next thing I know I am sitting in the ER with Sam and his broken clavical.

What had happened was that our oldest son Jack tagged his brother, Sam then tripped which caused Jack to trip and then Jack's elbow went right into Sam's clavical at full speed. Nice, huh? I am really feeling that brotherly love right now. The first image is of Sam with his sling and his t-shirt (It says "I DO ALL MY OWN STUNTS") that I had gotten the night before this all happened.

Looks like I saw this one coming, huh?

Have a good one!

SIDENOTE....We got these images at the hospital. His clavical looks like a snapped pencil. It is totally sweet that I can see my sons bones in this XRAY. WAY COOL and I am so glad that I can share it!

My iTunes: Hand In My Pocket (Acoustic) by Alanis Morissette

This image just makes me smile! It is one of my favorites from recent months. I snapped this in London when I was visiting a friends home and had been meaning to post it (well before now!). It is exudes freshness and makes me think of all the things we are starting here while at the same time reminding me of fond memories. {BIG SIGH}

Hope you all are well where you are in the world!


Sign of the Times...

What can I say? There are no words for this one.

This is for a friend of mine, Kathy. We have a standing inside joke and well...when I saw this sign while I was driving a few weeks ago...I couldn't resist pulling over a grabbing my camera. Sorry this was so long in getting posted Kathy.

Looks like I am back in America.

Have a great weekend all!

My iTunes: Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Here is a shot of the front of the semi that brought our 20 foot container to us last weekend. I have always loved trucks....for photography! :) Along with planes and trains.....there is something about forms of transportation! I was glad to get an oppotunity to walk around and take some shots that day. We had two loads come to us...the first was a 25 ft truck filled with belongings that we stored here in the States while we were away and then a week later the remainder of our stuff arrived. I was pretty grateful to have it come in two separate loads. It made it much easier for me and those who helped me unload.

Have a good Friday everyone!

My iTunes: Landed by Ben Folds

It sure is good to be back!

I have lots to tell and many pictures to share with you all. Our container made it across the Atlantic and we are finally unloaded and starting to settle in together as a family under one roof. What an incredible ride this is! The last couple of weeks have been crammed full with painting, unpacking, moving and sorting. We are exhausted but ready to get back to whatever "normal" looks like for our family of five. Actually it is five plus 2....we added 2 small turtles to our brood. We will see how long that lasts. :)

I snapped this shot during the 2 hours we had to unload our container from London. That's right....we only had two hours. We got it done in one and I managed to take some time to get some images of the ocassion. I am anxious to see what my blogger friends have been doing and thanks so much for all the encouraging words...

I have missed you all too!

Hey ya'll.....

Sorry that it has been so long.....

I have missed this so much. Unfortunately I will be gone a bit longer. As I am waiting for our container to arrive from London with our belongings, I am preparing our new home for the day when when move in (which is right around the corner). I am very excited but also very tired. Living out of boxes has become WAY too common for our family and I am looing forward to unpacking for awhile. I am a such a nester. Funny how those behaviors just click in without warning! I will be scarce around here for a little bit more time....whether it is visiting or posting. The whole cross continental move has got me a bit overwhelmed and at a loss for time when it gets to my blog.

I will be posting in about a week so make sure to check back!

Take care and have a GREAT weekend!
