It wasn't what I had planned...

Yesterday was our first day back to educational lessons following a 2.5 week break. I expect this week will be a tough one because it's always tough getting back to a routine after a break plus we need to be out of the house 3 days this week. Yuck.

Our morning went very well once I manged to get everyone out of bed. :) It only required one chocolate break for me to make it through. Not bad! :) As I prepared to take Matthias to his ortho appointment, we saw that Katherine had hurt her thumb while playing with one of her sisters. It was extremely swollen. bruised & making a clicking sound. She was happy & using it but I still decided we should take her to urgent care.Several hours later & one x-ray, we discovered her thumb was fine. Thankfully, she was happy while waiting (she did loose it completely when it was time for the x-ray):

So, it wasn't quite the day I planned but I'm thankful to have our first day under our belts. I'm thankful to the Lord for protecting our children! It's easy to forget how frail our health can be. I'm thankful for older children who made dinner.

I wonder what today will bring? :) I told Eric I preferred a dull day. ;) I've definitely learned through the years to hold my plans very loosely.
