A trip to the ER today....


Ellie and Reid's mom here. What a sad morning it was! Before church this morning, Brian and Ellie were down in the basement cleaning up and re-organizing a bit (since we had a garage sale yesterday and got rid of SO much!). Ellie is always Daddy's helper, so they were taking care of everything. I was upstairs getting the kitchen cleaned up. All of a sudden I hear this "WHAM". I thought a box fell off a shelf or something. No....it was Ellie's head hitting a wooden beam. Sophie, our 100 pound Golden Retriever, was down with Brian and Ellie. Ellie found an old leash and put it on Sophie. Sophie LOVES walks and got extremely excited and took off running. Ellie didn't let go of the leash, and was smacked into a wooden post that holds up our deck on top of the patio outside of our basement. Brian ran her upstairs where I was and was saying, "I'll get ice, then we are going to the ER." I had no idea what had even happened. It was horrible. Her head got it good and her cheek. She was also bleeding out her right nostril. Scary. To make a long story short, she is fine. She is a little bumped and bruised up a bit....but no concussion or any other problems to worry about. Thank goodness. What a way to start the day, huh? We are glad she was such a trooper, and she made us proud. Murphy's Law, I guess....preschool pictures are this week. Great look she will be sporting this year for her pics!!!! Gotta love it.

Hope Ellie is going better. That looks like it hurts! That is fine you can put our blog on your blog. Sorry I didn't ask you if I could put yours on ours, is that OK? Also I have some 18 month pants, of Elijah's do you need any. 3 pairs of jeans, 2 dressy and 2 pairs of sweats. Let me know if you would like them and I can get them to you.

Yowsa!! Poor thing. I'll never forget falling down on my roller skates the day before class pictures AND my birthday in 6th grade. I looked completely battered and had bandages everywhere. What a sight!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.
