And then she fell off the trampoline (George was the only one there with her) and broke her arm.
I feel terrible. We've had book club for 5+ years and and no one has ever gotten seriously hurt. That trampoline is 11 years old with a perfect record of no serious injuries. So while I don't think any unreasonable risks were taken, it is no good to have a child injured on your watch. And it's strange that within a week Clark broke his leg/ankle and now my young book club friend broke her arm.
Why? Why did this seem like a good idea?
I guess we hadn't covered the topic of dares and how they really aren't a good idea.
I think she may have a problem.

I can understand that Shakespeare isn't everyone's cup of tea, but you simply must believe me when I tell you what fun this was. Oh my goodness--we laughed and we have some serious thespians in our midst!
There was another scene with Jakob and Raven doing Much Ado About Nothing, but I don't have a picture to share. They were very good as well.
The adult did a scene from Comedy of Errors. Have you ever seen so much action in a bowing shot? True art, I tell you.

Abe went downstairs to help him hop upstairs and head off to the Instacare for an X-ray.
Elinor had my beloved chuck wagon dinner bell and was mussed from working in the kitchen. It was an improvement on the dark circles she had previously put under her eyes to make herself look like she was tired from a lack of sleep. I preferred she not represent me in such a fashion, even if that would have been accurate.
Bethany was great with child, with another baby strapped to her back. I must make motherhood look pretty glamorous!

I almost cried when Abe sent a picture of how she decorated it.....
All in all, Abe is a pretty awesome dad, they are seriously rocking kids, no one was injured and the house was not too much worse for the wear.
