Mairin spends her entire year waiting in anticipation for summer swimming. She just loves swimming for her coach, Dave and loves all of the meets and parties. This past Saturday we had just gotten home from Liam's baseball game when Mairin hopped off the edge of the hearth by the fireplace. She immediately went down to the ground and began crying. She had rolled her foot and it was clear we were going to the Emergency Room. She ended up breaking the bone in the right foot on the outside edge. We had a cast put on yesterday and although her spirits are pretty good she will more than likely miss out on most if not all of summer swimming. The cast is on for 4 weeks and then possibly another 2 weeks in a boot. Unfortunately swim ends the end of July so we will see. How did we go 13 years without any broken bones? How did the 1st broken bone end up on my only girl? (please notice that we had to go get the sharpies in coordinating colors). "look mom they fit on my cast so I don't have to carry them". David and I are both in aww over her ability to just take it in stride and move on. She is very matter of fact and has completely accepted the fact that there will not be any water this summer. (oh goodness...It makes me kind of shutter at the thought myself. We spend nearly everyday near some sort of water...god will give me the strength to make it thru this summer..LOL)
We finally got a boat slip and we are enjoying getting our pontoon all ready and loaded for a fun summer on the water. Cheers to the beginning of summer.
