Iris wears some very big socks.

Unable to walk or even put a boot on her still-painful foot, Iris plays outside, right outside the front door. Akiva, ever-faithful, watches as she uses one piano key to dig another piano key out of the ice.

Cast off!

Exactly one month and many, many x-rays after the break, the cast is scheduled to come off.




The saw is very scary. I take one photo, but then I have to hug Iris.

It is good to be hugged when one is scared.

So cute!

But itchy. Very itchy.

All around the town


Iris doesn’t go to school. She couldn’t do anything there if she did. She cannot play outside. She can hardly get around inside. And so, each day, we go outside together. I pull my little Iris all around the town. (Pictured: Akiva helps.)

Crutches are difficult. Iris scoots around the house on her butt. The blocks are located right near the bathroom doorway, which is exactly where Iris builds the fancy farm, complete with silo and horse coral. It is not easy to carry blocks with a broken leg!
