That's a crooked thumbs up to snow!

My four year old loves to give us the thumbs up. I'm glad for this as I noticed that the thumb on his right hand seemed to be more bent than the one on his left hand. The first time I noticed it my husband, a physician assistant, was working urgent care and didn't get home until midnight. So, being a good mother, I forgot all about it. A few days later Jason was telling me he was going to be five and I noticed the bent thumb again. Duh! I ran to show Brad. He told me Jason had a trigger finger. Jason went to the orthopedic surgeon the next week and the Dr. said he has a cyst in there. So, he will have to have a little surgery to cut it out. Jason is actually very excited about the whole thing. We'll see how he feels when he wakes up with stitches.

The kids were pretty excited about the new snow over the weekend. In their hearts I can see they are anxious for spring too as they made a snow bunny instead of a snowman.

No word back on the revised home study. We appreciate your prayers and encouragement.


  1. Hang in there, guys, that homestudy will be back soon. This sure has been a long couple of months for you, but let's hope that things will really start moving soon.
