Crash and Burn

We've been so busy around here that I haven't had any time to devote to the blog.  But I wanted to share Adam's mishap from Thursday.  Right in front of the park in our neighborhood Adam hit a rock while riding his scooter.  His face hit the ground first and then the rest of his body flipped over.  I'm not even too sure what position he actually stopped in since I was up the hill still when it happened.  I still am amazed that the only thing he got was scrapes to his face, well, that's not counting the damage to his helmet!  He was hysterical afterwards and he still had to walk home from there.  Poor little guy.

He was so happy to get to ride his scooter again right afterschool.  The weather has been so nasty here that he hadn't been riding much at all.

At first he couldn't even close his eye because it hurt so bad.  We cleaned him up, slathered on ointment, gave him Motrin, and an ice pack.  He recover pretty quickly after that.

I haven't ventured to ask if he wants to ride his scooter right away again or not.  He originally begged for a Razor for pry 9 months.  He finally got it at Thanksgiving and we had to practically talk him into actually riding it since he was scared he would fall.  Who knows what he will do now that he did fall.
