On the Way to Recovery

Well, here we are 12 days post surgery. He has a little hardware in there! We went for a checkup today and he is doing much better and somewhat back to the old Ethan. He will have to have all this out next Jan/Feb but he's hoping to be able to play soccer or run track in April. He went to football practice the other night and the coaches asked him to be the student manager so hopefully that will help him feel a little better.


This was his leg last Friday. The black bubbles are blisters and they had to pop them. He has another incision and staples on the other side of his leg as well.

I guess every family has one and mine is going to be Ethan. Last Thursday night he wrecked the four wheeler and it rolled on top of him and he broke his tibia and fibula. He had surgery on Friday and we finally got home today! He has been in quite a bit of pain but I'm not sure if the physical or emotional pain is worse. He was supposed to start football next Monday and now he will miss the whole season plus probably the basketball season. Thankfully he had his helmet on and he had a cell phone so he could call us right away but nonetheless we let him ride by himself (mistake) and he's only 13 - should be 16 (mistake). Hopefully we all learned a lesson and hopefully he'll think a little more the next time - although he was wondering if he would be able to ski this year - that's a wait and see! Anyway, thank you to all who have been praying. We have to go back to Jackson Friday so maybe I can get some gorry pictures to post!

Fun with Aunt Peggy

Ethan and I went to Salt Lake City this weekend to do some school
shopping and meet up with my sister Peggy while she was at a Stampin' Up!
convention. Peg's always good for a laugh.
Here is Shirrise Linn, Ethan and Peg at Ruby's Restaurant outside of Salt Lake.

Ethan and Trace

We've gotten the pleasure of watching our youth group
leaders little boy Trace on Wednesday nights.
He and Ethan have gotten to be good buddies.
Almost as good of buddies as Trace
and Kenny!

Fun At The Fair

For this greased pig in the barell contest they had a calcutta. Zach's team had to be in the
men's division so they thought they would
bring more money if the girls showed off
a little!

These guys knew how to sneak up
on a pig!


It's Fair Time!

Even though we don't show cattle
and such like we used to, the Zach
and Erin decided to get involved with
the fair this year and each got on a
greased pig team. The team has to
enter a muddy pen and grab a pig
and put him in a barrel. It was quite
a hoot! Here is Erin's team ....


After.... They got fourth place
in the junior division!
