I know that it has been a long time since I have posted. Life has been busy around here. We have started school, had company, and have been making yummy stuff from our garden. Yesterday I made fresh garden salsa. It was delicious!
Since I hate to post without pictures, here are some from when we went fishing a few weeks ago.

Emergency Room X Two

For the second time in 15 days we had Chris in the emergency room. You know that you are going too often when they don't ask to see your insurance card! Thursday the kids were doing the slip and slide which they hold down with tent stakes. When they were putting it away Chris thought that it would be a fun thing to throw the tent stake and make it stick in the ground. The only problem is that it hit his foot instead of the ground.
The cut was pretty deep but we cleaned it good and thought that it would be OK. By night time it was really swollen and he was in a lot of pain. We decided to be safe and get it checked out.
I embarrassed my husband greatly by taking pictures of the occasion. They cleaned the wound very well and took some x-rays. It turns out that it is just bruised and scarped inside. Since it was very painful to walk they wrapped it and gave him crutches. It is a lot better already but a 6 year old and crutches = lots of fun:-}

Hopefully we will not be returning any time soon!!
