staples...this post is not for the squeamish

While we were in Florida, Kyle was doing backflips into the pool and cut his head very badly on the edge of the pool. We didn't know it had happened until we looked up and saw him covered in blood.  He was very brave and didn't even cry.  I rushed him to the urgent care clinic and we were both dripping wet the whole time.  The doctor decided that STAPLES was the way to go on his scalp.  My stomach flops every time I say that.  Seriously, who decided that staples should be used to fix body parts?  Staples are for paper and things that can't feel!  I mean, okay, MAYBE if you're on a deserted island sitting under a palm tree and a coconut falls on your head leaving a large open wound just as a long lost Office Depot shipment washed ashore containing only a stapler and staples...maybe.  Or if you're in a Mary Shelley novel.

I could not watch as the doctor held the STAPLER to my child's HEAD! Kyle was so brave, even though he looked like a patient in a World War II infirmary. I would have needed full sedation if someone was going to staple my head!

Warning graphic pics ahead!

Dance Recital


"Still I Fly"
There' a time in your life
When the world is on your side
You might not feel it

You might not see it
But it surrounds you like a light
Makes you stronger for the fight

Never letting go
Gotta learn to grow
Watch me as I touch the sky
Still I fly
Now I know it's what I gotta do
Find a dream that's new
Give it all I got this time
Still I fly
Still I fly

Feel the wind all around
All the courage to be found
Who knows what's out there
I know I'll get there
Oh off into the sun
I know I'm not the only one that's

Never letting go
Gotta learn to grow
Watch me as I touch the sky
Still I fly
Now I know it's what I gotta do
Find a dream that's new
Give it all I got this time
Still I fly
Still I fly
Still I fly

Breathe it in
I'm gonna shine
It's my moment
Gotta live and live it right
I'm flyin
Flyin so strong

I'm movin'
I'm movin'
I'm movin' on

Never letting go
Gotta learn to grow
Watch me as I touch the sky
Still I fly
Now I know it's what I gotta do
Find a dream that's new
Give it all I got this time
Still I fly
Still I fly

Annabelle's Dance recital was sparkly, frilly and lovely and completely wonderful in every way!
 Her group danced to "Happy" by Pharrell Williams and "Still I Fly" by Spencer Lee.  Those precious girls rocked it!  I looked over the the boys during the recital and they were smiling ear to ear watching their little sister...so proud.

bluebonnets 2015

We went on a hunt to find this new place I had read about that has bluebonnets AND fossils!  We took a short "hike" from our car and turned a corner to a beautiful scene of bluebonnets overlooking a lake.  I got my bluebonnet pictures, Annabelle saw real butterflies, and the boys brought home some fossils...everyone was happy.
