Last month, Emma was bitten by a horse which broke the tippy bone in her finger.
Her color guard coach was unhappy to say the least! The finger injury came after an earlier knee injury which occurred when her father took her sledding between practice and competition one Saturday in February. We have a running joke with the color guard coach that next year she is to do no other activities during color guard season - no school play, no horse riding, and no sledding!
Emma had practice on April Fool's day (the day before championships) and we couldn't resist the opportunity to play a joke. We bandaged up her fingers and told a very convincing story that she had been hurt playing basketball at school earlier that day.
Woa, Nelly! While it was played perfectly, and everyone else appreciated the humor, it wasn't until the next day - championships - after the guard twirled superbly (and nothing had gone wrong) that the coach finally was able to laugh.
We got him good! Poor guy!
