We've been busy doing the usual June things. Cordelia is done preschool, Rachel is wrapping up SK, Kingsley and Cordelia's playgroup finished. We've been swimming, gardening, swinging, biking, rolling, reading, and playing.
I've also taken a detour from my yoga and occasional running, did I mention that? I started playing soccer, which I have never played before in my life. I'm generally horrid at team sports and anything involving moving objects, but kind of figured, why not? Everyone else was playing ;)
Week one, I pulled a quad. Week four, I rolled my foot and pulled something there. Week seven (this past Sunday), someone went Tonya Harding on my knee. I'm not entirely sure what happened. I remember going for the ball, then I was hit and there was a disturbingly loud and gross sound from my knee and I dropped. The doctor today said I have a tibial eminence avulsion, which he explained as a chipped bone. I googled and it's apparently something that most often happens to preteens who fall off their bikes. Fantastic.
ohemgee, Mom, you are such a klutz
Kingsley and I now have matching knee immobilizers. Mine is called a Zimmer splint, but it's basically the same thing only mine is more rigid and I have to wear it all the time. I get crutches, too.
So, that's where we are at the start of our summer. I can't carry Kingsley anywhere because I can't walk without crutches, I can't drive, I can't swim, I can't do much of anything. I'm not really sure where we are going to go from here, but it's going to be interesting!
