I had planned to show adorable photos of my mom's new golden retriever puppy but I'll have to save that for another week. If my kids can all stay healthy! (knock wood)
Oops he did it again...
Remember this photo from Father's Day? My youngest son had a mishap while he was racing his 4 wheeler. Guess where we were this week? Back at the ER! And not just one, but two!

So to sum it up, that's three ERs and two ambulance rides for the same kid in one month. And those weren't even his first trips in an ambulance. Or obviously to the ER. Or my only kid to ride in an ambulance. Good grief... My three boys sat around one evening this week comparing scars, stitches (they've all had them in the last year) and stories of other accidents. It sounds like they're clumsy but that's not the case. They've all played sports their whole lives including college, all have jobs and sometimes they have dangerous hobbies. They work hard and they play hard. They are males.
A friend of mine made the comment that we never seem to catch a break. On the contrary. We definitely caught a break. Again. My kid got to come home with us from the ER and I feel we are very fortunate. I count my blessings every-single-day.
