Well folks, it's been a long time coming but finally our fears came to fruition. Despite the fact that Jakson purposely falls out of trees and off of monkey bars (much to the school nurses' chagrin) he managed to break his first bone without using his dare devil trickery.

Instead he broke his THUMB while BOWLING.

Now that's talent.

In the end, it was not the haze of the smoke filled alley that did him in, but his sister rolling around (for reasons unknown) on the slippery wooden floor that caused his injury. While dad watched Olympians play beach volleyball, the events in the alley played out like a slow motion reel. Fall, stumble, trip, Bam, break.

 Of course, not wanting to waste any of the precious game they'd already rented shoes for, Zak had the kids finish up the frames (in true Grandpa Vermillion fashion) and then proceeded to run the rest of the errands slated for the morning. By the time Jakson arrived home, he was climbing up the lockers in the playroom again. Only after MY phone call to the doctor did Zak even think we should have Jak's hand looked at.

Why wasn't I there for the bowling incident, you ask? I was at home. Nursing a sprained neck. Injured by coughing too forcefully.

 Guess it runs in the family.
