Cast that Gnarly Boy!!

Samuel is gnarly.  Gnarly is a strange word and up until a year ago I hadn't heard it used since I was in the 7th grade.  It's a term Californian's use and it typically refers to really cool surfing conditions or wild and out of the sort... I think.  I am making my definition based on how it's used to describe people and waves.  So, Samuel fits the definitions.  He's wild, he repeatedly walks off the edge of objects, he doesn't back down, he won't stop until he gets his way.  He'll even stand up on his pop's lap and jump off head first from a rocking chair... Thus fracturing his wrist.  You read that right.  His wrist is fractured.  He's in a cast as of 8:45 am this morning and we are on our way out of town right now.  I'll post pictures of the gnarliness later..  I don't know if gnarliness is a word because blogger doesn't like it.

More later.

Oh my! Poor little Samuel. I swear he just works so hard to keep up to try to compete and keep up with all his bigger siblings! Please give him a hug for me.
