"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

Record Breaker

Oh Jack....

If only you were more nimble.

If you ask Jack, he'd tell you he's happy to be the first of five boys to break a bone.  It's true.  The title makes the last 7 days of pain worth it.

Well, kinda.

Jack Jack.  Jack-A-Lack.  Lacky.  Lacky Lou.  Lackish.  Jackers-

We know you're always up for entertaining others.  Wowing a crowd by dancing on a table and showing your tricks has always been your thing.

We're not asking you to stop entirely, just tone it down a bit.  When you feel like jumping, jump from the first step, not the 8th. 

The next four weeks may seem to take forever.  But we'll make it through. Promise.


  1. Ah, my poor boy! We're gonna help you heal quickly so you can be out there jumping and wrestling with your brothers again.

  2. Oh man! I forgot to text you after Luke told us about it at class meeting. What a bummer...
