Yesterday afternoon I got a call from Van's school (Nightcliff Primary). It was during school time, they told me he'd hurt his arm and was pretty upset. Van is usually pretty good. He loves school. So I thought it was a little odd. Poor guy was in a lot of pain and it was quite obvious that the best thing to do was to go to Emergency at the hospital and get his arm looked at. I dropped by Vince's work and he knocked off a little early. He dropped Van and I off and looked after Kai at home. The hospital was really good. We got pain killers, Xrays and plaster on pretty quickly. Vance was very brave. Especially after the pain relief. The rest is history. Pretty low key holidays for us. Van is ok and we are all adjusting. Follow up appointment next week. To be continued....
Not really comfortable with his arm and getting his photo taken just yet.
Feeling a little better posing.
Getting ready for his first shower. Got the plastic bag ready etc. He wasn't happy.
Van wanted to do Auskick this year (some of his classmates are doing it too). Vince said he'd happily take him, until he found out it was an 8am start! Somehow it's turned out to be a Mummy errand and even I find it difficult to get there on time.... It does make it worth it though when you see the boys out there having fun. I couldn't resist taking some photos this morning. They're so cute!!
Van getting ready to hand pass.
They do a rotation of drills before a modified game at the end.
Thanks for the Eagles shirt Kaile!!
Kai climbing logs.
Found someone's bracelet and put it on as a necklace.?
I thought this drill was pretty adorable. The had to collect the ball and then comando roll, once up the guy would chase them so they accelerated away with the ball. It made me giggle. It made Van giggle too.
Game time. I use the term very loosely. There are some pretty awesome kids out there tho and the beginners are improving every week. Adorable stuff.
