It's all fun and games till someone gets hurt!

Am I right or am I right?
With the onset of summer we have seen the opening up of new areas for exploration, desires for new skills and the polishing of old ones and new ways to have fun. Of course with fun comes danger. The kids have enjoyed the following past-times.

Joshua is getting stronger and stronger on his bike and isn't getting as frustrated on it, plus he is doing somersaults like he was supposed to be on his head.

Mckenna is learning how to do cartwheels and becoming quite a speedster on her scooter. She is also big into recycling hard plastics and will go into hysterics if you suggest throwing them away. Also, she is learning to ride a two-wheeler. Her ambition astound me.

And of course we can't forget about enjoying our food!

Unfortunately with their fun they have received a couple of boo boos.

Mckenna sliced her finger when she ran out the door at Deedee's and left her finger behind. Joshua scraped his elbow while riding his bike on Sunday-that'll teach him. ha. He got his forehead owie while jumping off something and smashed his head into the ground. (this is a couple day old pic). Unfortunately all of these accidents happened within a couple days times, not to mention the scraped knees and stubbed toes. Today actually Mckenna jumped off her bed and smacked her cheek and forehead on the wall, leaving her a couple of nice sized red marks.

And of course in summer you can't forget the occasional bouts of boredom!

With summer just barely starting my kids are going to look like a couple of beat-up kids. "But it's fun mommy!" Sometimes they just don't listen. "I told you that would happen."
