Two posts in one day. Wanted to post this picture but had not uploaded it yet. Can we just chalk this up to, "Boys will be boys," and go on with life? Because if not, I'm going to dwell on "what could have happened" and cry some more.
I have a love/hate relationship with the dirtbike. I love it just because of the fact that it gives my son hours and hours of fun. He loves it. All of our boys have one and they ride and ride and ride and ride and ride and ride.
However, Kade's has now been flipped front over back...which resulted in a broke collarbone. A month or so ago Konnor ran his off the gravel road, down the embankment and into the creek (you really should hear Kade's version of that story - SUPPOSEDLY, the dirtbike was ON TOP of Konnor and he had to save him from drowning....let's just say he has a wonderful imagination and I'm not REAL sure that is the true version of the story. Of course Konnor's version is that Kade was riding too close to him and Kade RAN him off of the road into the creek....we'll never know what really happened.) And then of course there have been numerous other little incidents.
Well, last night, Kade was riding and Konnor was on back. Kade didn't see the rope that my uncle had strung up to level some fencing he was doing....obviously, because he hit it full force and clotheslined himself with it. He was lucky. It was rope. The result was a bad looking rope burn with a very small cut place.
Thank you God for it not being barbed wire.
