Unfortunately this is not a picture of a prank Claire pulled for April Fools' Day:
This one's real.
She broke her arm last night when she fell out of a tree she was climbing.
After she got some pain medication and realized that she did not have to get the dramatic surgery or long-needled-shot she had been envisioning in her mind, she decided that all this hoopla was pretty dandy.
She marched out the door to school this morning with a big grin, daydreaming about how fun it would be to tell her class about her big her ordeal.
I sure hope that smile lasts when she gets frustrated that she can't write (it's her right arm) and when everyone is swimming while she's sitting on the side-lines over the next few weeks:(
