Sad day! Anton found out he is older than he thought he was. He broke his hand (actually, his first metacarpal) this past Friday longboarding down a steep hill. He got some serious road rash as he rolled down the hill, but word on the street (literally) was that it "was a pretty awesome wreck, man!"
We thought maybe his spill was due to lack of cardiovascular exercise, but as it turns out many other people felt like longboarding should be left to the seventeen year-olds. What!? What about Tony Hawk? Little bit of a kick in the teeth, but at least he's still young enough to have all his teeth to kick!
He got his cast on today and let Isie pick the color. She thought he should either go with pink or red so he chose the manlier color. He will only let us draw on the underside, but we took advantage and drew hearts. These pictures make it look as though HE is taking advantage and pretending to be completely incapacitated, but we have had the flu and he took care of me cause I was a little worse. Now he is tired. He is a pretty tough guy though. I'm glad prayers are answered and that he isn't feeling too much pain. I think I feel more for him than he does. He is more sore from the exercise and I'm doing things using only one hand. I guess I'm just trying to follow the phrase: what's yours is mine, what's mine is yours. We love him and hope he has a speedy recovery.
