My son is healing nicely and back to trying to run everywhere though his stitches don't come out for four more days. I found his smashed in helmet in the garage (a neighbor had gotten his bike from the accident scene and returned it to us). Please have your children wear their helmets! That could've been my son's skull. Now I work on making sure I get this scar to heal nicely. I've had alot of suggestions--mederma, cocoa butter, vitamin E, and a wide-brimmed hat. I'll try them all!
I wrote last year about volunteering at the Cotton Row packet stuffing. This year, we helped again. I remember last year having my then two year old daughter helping me count out two safety pins for each envelope. She couldn't count the needed four with her chubby hands, so I added two to each envelope too. What teamwork! This year, she helped by running from one side of the table to the other and waiting for me at each side with four pins (there were two lines for packet stuffing for efficiency). She was cute and would say "Excuse me!" if she got in anyone's way. Of course, my two children also sat in the corner and ate all kinds of the provided junk food while Rick and I stuffed packets. 5,000 packets were needed for Cotton Row's three events! Wow!
I am working on a post about Cotton Row. Can you believe it's only a week away?
