It's official. Chloe has broken her arm. It happened when she fell out of a tree at the park last night. I can't believe how often it has happened that we were at the emergency room the night before a trip. Ryan did this a bunch of times, getting stitches the night before trips to Hawaii. Anyway, she's doing well and is still quite cheerful despite knowing there will be no swimming, no tennis and difficulty writing. We go back on Monday for a permanent cast. And now we are off to Portland because, despite the pain, she is determined to make it to tomorrow night's performance of Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me- The NPR News Quiz. See you in a few days!
