From splint to cast

P1020312 After a week in a hard splint, Rufus got a full cast for his broken arm at the Primary Children's Hospital orthopedic clinic last week. Luckily, I asked for a waterproof cast so that I don't waste my pool membership this summer.

He got to choose the color cast and when they didn't have yellow to match the wrap he had on his splint, this is what he chose:


Yes, ladies and gentleman. My son is brainwashed, because if it isn't camouflage, then it has to be 5-mile, regulation hunting fluorescent orange. Three more weeks to go!



  1. Only the mother who blogs consistently and is on her THIRD broken bone would have the wits about her to take pictures at the ortho visit...I love it!!

  2. hey laurie,
    just spent some time catching up on things over there. wow - you all are busy! sorry to hear about another broken arm! poor guy....doesn't look like he is having such a hard time though : )
    and oh, my heart aches for your sister. i would be out buying butterfly things as well. i love the ultrasound picture.
    miss you!

  3. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree. When can he go pheasant hunting?

  4. Think of it this the end of the three weeks, it's probably going to look closer to camo than blaze orange. lol!

Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
