Thank you for all the well wishes.  The cast has not slowed him down one bit.

Here he is with his toy green teeth chasing the girl with the butterfly tattoo around the house.

Ok, the cast did eventually tire him out. . .

Blue casts can really weigh a boy down

Now that he stopped chasing her she was free to accessorize a bit more.

What could be better?

They are making the most out of their last days as 4 year olds.  She caught me off guard yesterday when she asked, “Will you take us to go see Sawyer and Jake for our birthday?”

“Yes, sure.  Why?’ I responded while trying to figure out what happened that made a visit to the cemetery pop into her toddler brain. 

“I love them.  You don’t take us to see them often enough.”

She is right.  I have not taken them to see Sawyer and Jake since the spring when she carefully arranged stones for her brothers.  Over the past 5 years Evan and I have made the decisions about when and when not to bring the twins to the cemetery.  Now that they have their own opinions I did not imagine we would be discussing trips to the cemetery.
