Hello world!

Well we will see if we can’t get up-to date with this whole blogging thing!  Last Saturday with all the snow melted off the driveway, the kids decided to go ice-skating.   We even put helmets on Teigen and Hayden!  It was so funny watching them we-wobble around, trying to stay upright.  Everyone had such a good time,  until Garrett fell face forward and landed on his chin.  Poor guy!  Mark scooped him up and brought him inside and assessed the situation.  They went into urgent care, where I am told he was very brave!  They numbed the area and he received 8 stitches in blue.  The nurse even gave a couple packets of candy because he held still so well.    If you catch his face at the right angle he looks like he has sprouted blue whiskers!  The kids like to sing Poor Old Michael  Finnigan to him!  Here’s a picture of the finished product!

Stitches

Garrett's Ice Skating Stitches

He goes back in on Wednesday to have them removed.

  1. Well, once in a while we check out all our hi-tech nieces and nephews and kids bogs, so was fun to update on yours. Good luck with your new “flock dog”… we heard once that it is so important that you dont create a human bond with them, or they wont be as diligent about bonding and taking care of the sheep… is that true? Sorry about Garretts’ wounds… sounds like a fun outing otherwise. The kids picture is really cute. Love Dale and Bonnie

    Thanks! We’ve been checking that out too, it sounds like you can bond with them as much as you want as long as you do it in the area where they are suppose to be protecting. It’s about as contraversial as child rearing. He is sooo sweet! Thanks for looking,
