Ice Ice Baby - Week of Feb. 4th

"If you're skating on thin ice you might as well dance." ~Anita Shreve
"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
The crazy weather continued when the temperature warmed to 50 degrees Monday morning in Michigan as Jane boarded her flight to San Diego for work.  Luckily she made it out before the next round of ice arrived on Wednesday.

With the mild conditions, everything was in a meltdown mode.  And then it rained.  When the temps dropped dramatically, it acted like a flash freeze!  All areas covered in any precipitation suddenly glistened with an icy finish.  No school again for Cam on Wednesday.  He did test out the conditions on our driveway which appeared to be an icy mirror.

Thursday morning, we headed downtown to see Cam's orthopedic specialist.  His left leg was still giving him problems.  His doc indicated he thought our growing boy was experiencing some spasms and tightness.  X-rays looked good and we left there with a leg immobilizer for Cam.
With the remainder of the week off of school due to the weather, the brace remained on his leg all day and all night.
We didn't think Cam would be able to sleep with it on, but he said it felt much better with it.
The picture looks similar to one Cam is using.

Our annual Sunday meal with the Raisch fam was 'breakfast for dinner' and we dined on homemade waffles with available toppings of syrup, homemade strawberry jam and whipped cream, bacon, scrambled eggs and fresh fruit.
As Cam likes to say, "It's good to change it up!"

Camology Quotes:

With the unpredictable forecasts, the teachers and kids haven't been certain if they will see each other in school the next day.  Cam's teacher told us that when she said 'see you tomorrow' to Cam at the end of a school day, his response was:
"Chances are not looking good, Miss Konkle!"
