{ Fall Colors & Battle Scars }

October 24, 2012


It’s about time for some updated pictures of my daughter! A couple of weeks ago I dragged her out in front of the brilliantly colored trees that lined our town. She was being her typical goofy self, which I love. Honestly, I was just thankful that she was willing to be my subject as I’ve taken so few pictures of my kids the last 5 months due to the busy season.


This next set of pictures I took back in July. Jayda had an unfortunate accident that resulted in 24 stitches in her right hand. It was a classic story of “kids being kids” and a “life lesson” learned the hard way. Without going into all of the details, let’s just say that reenacting your favorite boy bands’ YouTube videos of “Real Fruit Ninja” is not a wise idea. Anyway, God had completely surrounded her that day. The artery was missed and there was no nerve or tendon damage. Within 6 weeks she was able to try out for volleyball. I’m truly amazed whenever I think about how fortunate she is. Yes, she will have a decent scar for life. But, all things considered, she was protected.  Here are a few shots of her about 8 days after the incident with the stitches still in her hand. WARNING: IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH, DO NOT SCROLL ALL OF THE WAY DOWN…

    She is growing up so fast! Oh no about the Fruit Ninja. Thank goodness she is OK! She will have a funny story now to tell about the scar. It’s only funny if mom is ready to laugh about it though. Too soon? <3

    No joke, growing up WAY too fast! Jes ~ I knew I had to be able to laugh about it before blogging, which is why it took me 3 months to post. It’s all good… now 😀
