3 feet = broken

what an adventurous holiday weekend we have had...

the biggest event... Braxton fell off our bed early early on the 4th of July. He had come downstairs to snuggle, dozed off, then rolled right off into the floor. He fell only 3 feet but landed just right. I made it 6 1/2 years as a mommy with no broken kid bones. Braxton broke that trend, literally, when he snapped his collarbone in half. That guy is one tough cookie! Here he is showing off his sling. The doc says there isn't much to do for this injury, so we just make do as we can.
A few of us hit the campaign trail and a good fireworks show in Papa's district @ the Spring Hill Supertarget! Missing in action are several other attendees!
I love love love a good firework show! My big kiddos love it too!
We've had a wonderful holiday weekend with a bday party, Dickson cousins, an ER trip, fireworks, WALL-E movie, and a campaign catfish fry that didn't really exist.
My thoughts lately have been about covering my children in prayer...pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to Him for the lives of your children..Lamentations 2:19 Leave nothing to chance. Life happens, accidents happen. Keep an open line with God.
