James has had his walking cast for several days now, but he wasn't willing or able to actually walk very much. In fact, the school nurse even called us and suggested that he might need some physical therapy to get back to walking. But then today he was doing much better! Still not perfect, but definitely getting around on his feet more than scooting. :)

Apparently I didn't actually get a picture of the new cast, but he chose orange this time, on Matthew's request. :)

It turned out that one of the other dads there is the head of the NICU at the children's hospital here. And he knows some of the doctors that took care of Matthew and James! Small world. :)

It was very sweet -- parents aren't allowed in the X-ray room, so when they were wheeling him back, he said, "I love you, Mama!" (Everyone in the waiting room said, "Awww.")
The boys' school had a book fair and "guest reader" night yesterday as well. We ran into one of the boys' friends right away, and at the first part of the evening (a reading and harp performance), James was surrounded by his kindergarten friends. :) Later, his two best friends were very excited to get to push his wheelchair (for obvious reasons, they're not allowed to do that during regular school).
It's also very sweet that the last couple days James has come home with more drawings and get well cards from his friends. The first batch was a class activity, but apparently some of the kids are still making him cards/pictures just in their free time.
Mike is hanging in there with his liquid diet -- he's much less cranky about it than I would be!

One of Mattie's friends from school is in the hockey class, too, and he was very excited to see Matthew. In fact, even though they were on different teams for the scrimmage, J tried to pass the ball/puck to Matthew! Very cute.
