Fall Down Go Boom

Nolan's competitive spirit will stand him in good stead...someday. It is not always a wonderful thing when he competes with his brother by racing on the snow-slicked sidewalk in front of our local mall. He face-planted, and actually slid on his head for about a foot. I really thought the damage was going to be worse than it was, but fortunately he escaped with no bloody scrapes. He does have a decent goose-egg. And broken glasses.

In other news, we have a crazy-busy weekend filled with Nolan's last tennis class, Matt's piano lesson, and a hockey tournament that includes a game tomorrow at 7:00am. At least we don't have to travel for the hockey tournament!

how do you keep yourself - and the kids - motivated to do all that stuff? I look at the pile/list of things I've wanted to start with my two and can't get past the awareness of how much of my (already depleted) energy it's going to take!

Oh, owie! That sure looks tender :o( Amazing how resilient kids are, though - thank God!

The swelling went down, thank goodness. Dennis deserves a medal because he took Nolan to tennis and Matt to his piano lesson this morning. I'm not feeling so hot today - ugh! Hockey game at 5pm - I'll be glad for a quieter weekend next weekend (hockey ends this week - yay)!

Wow! You guys are busy! That head looks like it hurts, but you are right, kids are so resilient! They get over things so much quicker than us adults!
