My oldest son and I were playing soccer today in the front yard. When I kicked the ball toward the goal, he ran ahead to block it. As he went for the ball, he landed on it, rolled over it, and fell down (awkwardly) on his arm. He immediately screamed in pain. My parental instinct knew that something was wrong. As you can see, he broke his arm.
He's been a tough little booger! He even went to cheer on his team at soccer practice after getting his cast. Hopefully he'll be healed up soon and back out on the field with his friends.
It's so sad to watch one of your kids in pain. I felt so sorry for him while he cried in in the front yard. He was still in a lot of pain at the hospital when I left for work, but he was nothing but smiles when I saw him this evening. He must really think the cast is "Cool." He let Daddy be the first person to sign it, too!
Well, it's midnight and I'm ready to go to sleep! It's been a long day....
