Hangin' With The Cousins :)

My sister made it here safe and sound all the way from South Dakota. The kids are having a great time with all of their cousins. I wish that I could join in on more of the fun, but with my school schedule, I am gone more than I am home it seems.

The cousins never take long to warm up to each other. . .even though it has been almost a year since they have seen each other, they never act as though they have been apart for more than a day or two.

It didn't take long for our annual visit to the ER. . .it seems that at least one time during the visits at least one person ends up with a broken this or that or something that needs to be stitched up.

Luke cracked his head open on Sunday morning. He was riding his bike (when he was supposed to be getting ready for church) and he wrecked into a construction trailer. When he came into the house, it looked like something out of a horror movie. He was covered in blood from head to toe. Pretty scary!

I ran him to the ER and the cut on his head was so deep that you could see the bone on his forehead when they cleaned it out! UGH! I don't deal well with blood, so I am always amazed at how calm I can be when I need to for my kids sake.

They ended up doing three layers of stitches and so I have no idea how many stitches he actually has. He was a trooper though. He toughed it out and hasn't really complained much except to ask for medicine when his head is pounding.

So, hopefully that will be our only visit to the ER while the cousins are here this Summer :)I have midterms tomorrow, so I am off for now.

Until next time. . .

  1. ouch, OUCH! I am not good with blood either, but in an emergency with my kids always seem to pull through! I hope he is feeling better!
