Summer Injuries!

This summer has been worse than some, as far as injuries go. Earlier this week, the girls were riding motorcycles with Papa Harold. Lylli went first. Then it was Layla's turn. Harold went to lift her up, and she hit her leg on the hot exhaust pipe! Poor thing! She's doing fine now, so that's good! :) But she had a HUGE blister!

Today we went on an outing to Shane's dad's (just a half mile from his mom's) to see our kitty. (Jerry's watching the cat until we get a house.) The girls were riding their bikes, and Shane and I walked with the dog. Seryn rides well but doesn't brake well. She'd rather stick out her feet to stop. Well, Shane lifted her seat a bit so she could peddle better up the hills. Deciding to follow her sisters, instead of waiting for her dad, Seryn followed the big girls down the hill to the house. Unfortunately, when she stuck out her feet to 'brake' her feet didn't reach as well she thought they would. She panicked, her arms caused her wheel to go crazy, she hit the curb, and crashed. (The picture above is her mark she left on the world!)
She got banged up pretty good, but she's doing well. She has a pretty big gash under her chin, and most people probably would have had her taken in for stitches. But Shane butterflied it closed, and I think it will be fine. She's bruised, but in relatively good spirits!
Hopefully that is the end of our summer injuries this year!
