Don't Trip With Your Hands in Your Pockets


Ryan had a not-so-fun Friday. He tripped and fell on the way to school. It was a chilly morning and he had his hands in his pockets at the time. As a result, his face took the brunt of his up-close and personal meeting with the sidewalk. It really didn't look too bad at first- just a bleeding scrape on the side of his nose. He cried the most about hitting his head, but he never even got a lump there. We finished the walk to school and I got him cleaned up in the nurses office and off to class with a small bag of ice. By the time I picked him up after school, his whole left cheek was red and scraped. This picture was taken this morning, because I kept forgetting to take one before today. He's looking much better now (except when he has hot chocolate all over his face and then it looks worse!) and can't wait for the scab on his nose to be gone. It bothers him and he keeps picking at it. I'd kind of hoped to try for a Christmas picture this weekend, but I think we'll try again later! I'm just so grateful it wasn't any worse.

I'm glad he's okay. He can brag about the scars later, it always makes for a good story later on!

ouch! perfect timing for pictures. that's how it seems to go at our house- it's a miracle when we can get a pic with no scabs on any of the kids.

Man, he's still cute anyways! That's too bad, but it didn't affect his handsomeness :) (Is that a word??)

Sorry he got hurt. You should try to photoshop the scrapes for your pictures.
