Busted Chin

So when I received the call from the nurse at the kids' school, my first thought was one of them threw up, or wasn't feeling well.  I never thought, in a million years, that she would tell me Karsten had an accident on the playground, hurt his chin and may need a stitch or two. 
 I raced to his school mid-day, and took him to the ER to be checked out.  

Karsten SO did not want stitches - he was very worried and upset about the thought of getting them. Luckily, he was able to get this thing called "glue".  It kept the skin together to let it heal like stitches, but without the scar (or needles!). Karsten would have said yes to anything the doctor suggested as long as he didn't say "stitches". 

So we left with "glue", a nasty bruise and instructions for no football or swimming for a week. That was a loooooong week, for both of us and when time was up, I was so happy for him to go run around!

With the "glue" on . . . 

 A few days after the accident . . .

Happy this is behind us, though I'm not betting on the fact that that was our last time in an ER. 
Raising a boy . . .  never a dull moment!

And the football saga continues . . .

My man LOVES football.  He adores playing and I LOVE watching! 
Here are some action shots of my little guy playing. 
BTW, the last one of Karsten caching the football in the air, was for a TOUCHDOWN! :)

I am so lucky, I have my amazing family to help cheer Kars on. 
My sissy is always there and now Papa and Grandma Karen have joined me for games as well.  
When Mom and Papa Rich can, they make their way down the mountain for Karsten too!

One game, J and G tagged along with Papa and Grandma. 
Grandma made an awesome picnic lunch and we noshed on some good eats after Karsten's game. 

 I love how my Mom and Papa Rich roll . . . styling in their covered folding lawn chairs!

 And this is my little buddy, after every game  . . . he really does leave it all out on the field!

Crafty Ella

Ella loves to craft. She loves to make things, with paper and crayons, or other elements. She was given a sewing craft by Grandma Karen and she LOVED putting it together. The funniest part was when she pulled out these glasses and placed them on while she sewed.  Ella doesn't need glasses, they are fake, but she felt they were appropriate to wear while she made her stitches.  That's my funny girl. 

No rhyme or reason behind this picture of Karsten, 
I found it in my photo stream. 
It made me laugh and hope it does for you too!
