We've Got Mail

The silver lining to the cloud that is a broken leg has been mail. When you are 7 years old, getting something in the mail is a very big deal. JT's gotten a number of get well cards in the mailbox at home (and he reads them carefully all by himself before he shares them with me). His Aunty KO and cousins sent a card, scary pirate stickers, and gift cards for ice cream and toys (that there is a kid double play). And today, my college roommate M and her children (M and M) sent a package with books. Packages are the ultimate mail.......and to receive one is a major jackpot. He's pictured here with his new Magic Treehouse books, most delighted to learn that people far away in California are worried about him and his leg.

Clearly, the bum leg isn't holding him back.

So thanks to all of you who have kindly thought of my boy and sent him mail. Your good cheer has made several of our days brighter.

yay for mail and presents - I saw a pirates sword last night and almost got it for him but figured he already had five or six...
