Craig taught Micah to ride his bike last night. He caught on really fast & became quite confident...too confident. After supper Micah couldn't wait to get back on his bike. All was going well until it was time for his last ride of the night. Micah had been riding on the grass, but was confident enough to try his last ride down our gravel driveway. He was almost to the end of the drive-way when he started fishtailing & wiped out big time. It was so awful. I remember being at the emergency room with Grandpa Pat when Micah was just a little baby. We sat there forever & I was watching all these parents bring in their hurt kids. I told Craig that I never wanted Micah to get hurt. I told him I didn't want Micah to even get a mosquito bite! This is life. We learn, we get hurt, we fall, we get up again. I know this is a small injury. Hopefully we can handle the future ones.

She was worried at first & then she laughed when Craig was running up the driveway carrying Micah. I
don't think she knew what was going on, but maybe she's going to be like mom!!

How awful!!! Awful looking lips, awfully swollen nose, awfully devestated Micah! Sure glad you captured it on film!!

It seems to be those last rides that get ya! Elliot took one last ride down the driveway when he was little and shoved his front two teeth back into the roof of his mouth. Evan took one last ride off the bike jump and scraped his chin off and ground down the bone a bit. Boys, boys, boys. Nolan was telling me today how he's going to climb trees when he gets big...with his tennis shoes on.
