Airplane Rides

We were a little bored on the airplane.  Here are some goofy pictures of our ride.  BTW... We are heading to California for vacation.  

Last day of school

Ryan in the last day if preschool with Mrs. Shoemaker sporting his orange cast.   
Ethan and Olivia in the first day on 7th grade and the last day of 7th grade.  I don't think Ethan grew very much.  LOL!   Yes, he really is that much taller than Olivia.

New Cast

Yes, Olivia is driving on the road.  Now I know you are wondering, when did the twins turn 16?  They are not 16, they are 14.  Iowa law say they can learn to drive at 14.  I know you are thinking, "WHAT?!!! That is too young to drive!" Well, think back.  How old were you when you started driving on the road? I was 14 when my dad started to teach me how to drive.  Scott and I also figure the more they drive with us the better they will be at 16 when they can drive on their own.  They are also currently enrolled with the Drive With Cops program.  Cops are the ones teaching them to drive the right way.  Notice I do not have a picture on Ethan.  I do not allow him to drive with me in the car.  He is HORRIBLE and I want to live.  LOL!   He is learning.  Hopefully by the time they finish drivers ed they will both be better than they are now.

Ice pack

I had to buy a new ice bag because the hospital one sprung a leak.  I bought this one.  Ryan took one look and said that the ice bag was for heads not legs.  I told him it was for both.  I left the room and came back in this is what I found.

Big Wheel

A Ryan and I went to a few garage sales yesterday.  Here are a few of his finds.  
A slinky, a big wheel, a magnifying glass, and really big binoculars.  

He was having a good time ripping around on the big wheel he bought for $5.00.  Until... He wiped out at the end of the driveway.  

Here he is at the hospital with a spiral fracture of the tibia.  He is in a full length cast for 6 weeks.  He is not allowed to put any weight on it until the doctor tells us.  He went from a thumbs up on the big wheel to a double thumbs down on the cast in less than 3 hours.  Poor kid is miserable.
