Bittersweet Day

They received their certificates, bumper stickers and banner and had group pictures taken with the other November Student of the Months. But about an hour after Danielle won her award, she slipped off the monkey bars and fell hard on her side.

Today was “one of those days.” My daughter Danielle (7 yrs) and my son Christopher (5 yrs) both won “Student of the Month” in their classes at school. It was fun watching them being surprised at their respective assemblies by having their names called out as this month’s recipient. They received their certificates, bumper stickers and banner and had group pictures taken with the other November Student of the Months. I’m a very proud dad!

But about an hour after Danielle won her award, she slipped off the monkey bars and fell hard on her side. One trip to urgent care later and we discovered she broke her arm. So for the next four weeks she’s sporting a soft-cast on her left arm. (Fortunately she’s right-handed.) She handled the entire crisis very well. Like I said, I’m a proud dad!
