Yesterday, John taught the boys one of the fundamentals of being a boy. They learned how to make ramps so they could get some air. Today they had lots of fun being boys. After taking a few pictures I went inside to mop the floor. The boys came in and played video games for a few minutes then went back out for more fun. Apparently, Jacob didn't feel the need to wear his helmet the second time around. After a few minutes I heard a pretty awful scream. Jacob fell off his bike after a jump and landed on his hands and knees. He was complaining that they were scratched. As we were walking in the house to wash his hands and knees, I noticed blood dripping down his neck from the back of his head. His hair is so thick it took me a minute to find the cut. It wasn't very big, so I didn't get too excited. I just put some pressure on it, and had him hold an ice pack on it. After about thirty minutes, I was pretty sure we needed to go get stitches. John got home and took a look. He decided I was just overreacting and it looked fine. After a few minutes he looked again and said maybe we should make a trip to the doctor to be safe. Jacob did really good at the doctor. He is so brave.Three stitches later all is well. He doesn't even have to miss school tomorrow. He is pretty excited that he has a story for writer's workshop. The joys of raising boys.
