Me: "ugh, I feel so sick to my stomach after eating those cookies. I think I'm going to puke."
K: sits up all perky, "I'll go get you a puke bowl!" Gets up and runs to the kitchen.

The phone rang last Friday as we were expecting our friends over for dinner..... it was C.. "I fell off my bike." He'd been riding his bike to and from work (6 miles!) to stay in shape, reduce his carbon footprint, and save gas. He hit a part of the curb at a weird angle and his bike went one way and he went the other in front of a Wendy's on Peachtree Road. He needed stitches in his chin and ended up with a broken radius (it was a stable fracture so he only needed to wear a sling for the weekend) and sprained his wrist and elbow and had some pretty gross road rash. The bike is fine, however.
He was tough through the stitches (didn't hurt that the PA who did them was pretty and kind) and were out of there in less than 4 hours. Thanks the the B/S family for caring for and feeding our kids! He is healing well and will be back at the orthopedist in a couple weeks for follow up. He's got a new pair of glasses on order out of the episode.
Thanks for all your well wishes! Carlton is mostly healed up, and will see the orthopedist this week for follow-up (his wrists are not quite back to normal). Just to be clear, he DID have on a helmet, or else things could have been a lot worse! In fact, I had to clean little tiny bits of black bike-helmet foam out of his PORES on his forehead where his head and the sidewalk were the bread of a bike-helmet sandwich.
I found an old coffee table in a neighbor's trash can just as I was thinking of wanting to do a bench project for her piano recital that we could donate to the Girl Scout hut.
We painted it up in a McKenzie Child style in colors that match the GS hut decor (!) and it turned out pretty cute. I still need to put a coat of polyurethane on it before we take it over there for permanent use. Meanwhile, it's our piano bench, and I need to keep looking for one that matches OUR decor :-)
Bonus- you can see my kitty Butterscotch in the background of the top picture.
Here is M with her Bass teacher, Mrs. B, after her spring recital. She played "Country Dance." As a funny aside, K told Mrs. B that she looked like a mermaid (which she sort of does!). Maren was accepted to a Jazz workshop put on by professors and students from the Jazz Program at the Juilliard School of Music this summer, which is very exciting. The culminating performance is Friday night, June 20, at 6 pm, at North Atlanta High School, and is free, so if you like Jazz music, come on down.
