OK, last year I had a really rough start to the school year with my Dad having a stroke and then passing away. I had hoped that this would be a great year. On July 20th, unfortunately, I broke my ankle in 3 places and dislocated it too. It was a silly accident–I don’t even have a good story. The push mower simply started to slip near a ditch in front of my house. Because I was so worried about the mower, I didn’t pay attention to how close my feet were. The ground gave way, and my foot and I slammed into the ditch–in different directions. The mower thankfully didn’t cut me, and there were all kinds of cars that stopped to help me. My main thought was that I had ruined my vacation to see my daughters, and I was worried how I was going to start school (on August 12th). The vacation went off as planned, and I had incredible help from the staff and students at NDE! I would never want to do it again though!
Here are a few pictures of my time in DC with a broken ankle. My daughters attended North Daviess schools for six years before we moved back to Loogootee. Love my daughters!
