I wanted to post this pic of Micah. We took this picture when we got home after going to the ER. Micah is showing off his identification armband and some stickers that he got while there. Hopefully this will be the last I post of ER visits and big cuts for awhile!
Last week was an interesting week. Trying to stay active with Micah, but not being able to get wet or play rough, was challenging. We had lots of inside play and library time. Here are the boys playing with play dough. The morning after his big boo-boo, Micah requested french toast for breakfast. We usually only make big breakfasts on the weekend, but it sounded like a good idea to me! :)

Well, we made our first trip to the ER this evening. For that matter, I made my first call to 911 ever and had a nice visit with the EMT's and Firefighters. Micah and Joshua were playing, not even rough housing, and Micah somehow managed to slip and fall over the couch and hit his head on the fireplace. It was one nasty cut and required 6 stitches. Yikes! Micah was such a trooper and very brave while he was getting stitched up. I also have to mention that Joshua was the best big brother ever! He was so helpful and thoughtful! After the whole ordeal was over, we took the boys to get milkshakes at Chick-fil-a! Whew. After all of that, I think I'm headed to bed!

It's been hot here the past few days, so hot that the boys haven't wanted to go outside and play in the evenings. Tonight they decided it would be fun to splash in the little pool. They put on their suits, grabbed their diving toys, and enjoyed the cool water for a long time. Here they are waiting in anticipation for the pool to fill with water. :)

We weren't really camping...but the boys got to "camp out" in our room while we had guests staying at our house earlier this week. Neil read books to them in our bed before they went to sleep. As you can see, they had a good time! Note that Micah is holding our alarm clock. This can be dangerous. :) Last week, when we were visiting my parents, the alarm clock in my room went off at 2 a.m. All I know is that Micah had been playing with it before we got ready for bed. What am I going to do with that boy??!!
Micah decided earlier this week that he was finally interested in getting on his bike. I sent him in to get shoes on and rain boots are what he came back wearing. :) He did a good job pedaling, but had a hard time staying out of the grass. Then he would get frustrated that he couldn't go forward. It was hot outside, so we didn't stay out for long. Hopefully this is just the first of many bike rides for him!

The boys and I went to visit my parents for a few days last week and had a blast! We went to the park, ate at chick-fil-a (twice), had a picnic at a local state park, paddled around a lake on paddle boats, spent a morning at a local nature center, and went roller-skating (the first time for the boys)!! And that doesn't even begin to describe the hours spent tromping around the yard, hunting for bugs, and splashing in puddles! What a fun, busy, few days we had! The pictures above were from splashing in the creek at the state park. Micah hunted for perfectly round rocks that were great for making towers! And Joshua hunted for crawdads. My Dad hunted for anything that the boys were looking for. :) I do not have pictures on the paddle boats, since I was one of the ones paddling. And I forgot to take my camera when we went roller-skating. All I can say about that is that Joshua had a blast and Micah even got out on the rink to try his hand at skating! I enjoyed it as well, as it brought back many memories of my years spent skating. Thanks, Mom and Dad, for a great visit!
