Tanner had a little mishap at school before the Thanksgiving break. Lets just say that his injury was NOT his fault. After several Dr.'s appointments, visits to the x-ray office and the pediatric orthopedist, we found out that his ring finger is broken. He was absolutely heartbroken...devastated when he got the news. Now that his hand has been casted (and finger splinted), he can no longer finish the rest of his select soccer season. He will not be able to play in the District Cup Finals. Tanner said, "This is what we work the entire season play in the District Cup". He was hoping to sink that 30th goal during the District Cup games...his personal goal for the 2010 season. He is ONE goal short. In an 11 year old boys world, this was the worst news ever. John and are were just proud that it took us almost 12 years of parenting to experience our 1st break. With 4 active boys, this is HUGE!

According to Tanner, the perks to having his hand casted are:

1. Getting out of some of his daily chores.
2. Being able to type his classwork instead of handwriting it.
3. New Silver Sharpies(a boy after my own heart) so friends and family can sign his cast.

It is going to be a long 4 weeks!

I am so impressed you've gone this long without a break with 4 active boys. What a bummer about his goal. Maybe he can go out during half time and score his last goal:)

Bummer. I'm looking for something to get me out of chores too but I'd rather not have to go through what Tanner has!
