It's amazing how a fun afternoon of swimming with your cousins can go south in an instant.
Sunday afternoon, we went to Katie's to swim with all the kids. Big fun, or so you would think. And it was, until Evan decided to do a backdive (her version is basically an "almost" backflip) off the side of the pool.
Well.....it didn't go so well. She hit her head on the edge and made quite a cut just inside her hairline.
Brad pulled her up out of the pool, took a look, and to say the least.....he kind of panicked.
I (nursing degree comes in handy sometimes) did not panic. Evan.....she really panicked. ("I can't handle this." -"I don't want to die!" -"This is the worst day of my life!")
Anyway, obviously we took her to the E.R. They stitched up the deeper part of the inside, then stapled up the outside (using staples allows them to close it up without shaving any hair). She handled it very well once we got to the E.R. I was very proud of her.
Here it is all clean and stapled up. We can wash her hair like normal, but she can't go under in a pool for about 10 days. Not good when you go swimming almost every day. Anyway, she is perfectly fine now, no pain at all! I'll take the staples out after 2 weeks and it'll all be over. God Is Good! This could have been so much worse.......-h.

Brad caught this tiny, baby turtle, so now we have a new pet. "Princey" is now living in a fishbowl in Evan's room.

Last weekend, Brad and the girls went fishing with Ryan and Dylan. No fish were caught, but everyone had a good time. Anyway, Ryan took this picture and I love it. I had to post it. What a neat moment that Ryan captured. Who knew, he is quite the photographer........-h.

During the dress rehersal, the dance fell apart and they missed the whole ending, so when they nailed it during the Recital, it was sweet victory!
They were all quite proud of themselves, and they should have been. It was AWESOME!
Having a makeup pro in the family is great, too. Lorelei did their makeup and they looked way to pretty and way to old!!!!
Just before the big show!!!

Well, tonight, since we were getting whipped by St. Boniface, the t-ball coach let the kids play some different positions. Ella asked to be catcher!?!
She was so proud of herself, and when I went up close with my camera she was happy to pose!
Oh - she did get her best hit ever tonight - a solid line drive to short stop. She is getting pretty good at hitting.
She loves t-ball so much, she was reminiscing a few nights ago about her first ever practice and talking about what they did. I love it, too! It's so much fun to watch her. Tonight I realized she only has 5 games left - I'm kind of sad about it coming to an end...............-h.

Ella was definitely having more fun than I was!
