First Grade is Tough!

My phone started buzzing a little before 8:00 this morning.  That usually means that either Carson forgot his lunch or we are moving.  Today, it wasn't either of those things.  There had been a little accident at school.  My most-prone-to-fall child had fallen.  On her face.  Again.


(Please excuse the "branding" across her face.  I don't normally do that, but she looks so bad that I didn't want someone to decide to steal this picture for a domestic violence campaign.)


Camilla has broken her nose once, almost broken her nose once, and gotten a 3rd degree sunburn on her face.  I'm not sure what it is about her face, but it has had more bumps and bruises than it deserved.  Today, she was running to get her backpack to line up for school, and she stepped wrong where the gravel changed to cement.  The poor thing lost her balance and fell forward.  The good news is that the bump on her head isn't bothering her at all.  Also, the nurse had her put ice on it for a while so the swelling is much better now.  The bad thing is that her hands, knees, and elbow are really painful.  Please pray that she sleeps well and feels better tomorrow?  Thanks!
