Lizzy Beth

 We had a bit of a scare this weekend w/ Lizzy.  She was playing in a soccer tournament and took a ball to the left side of her face, trying to keep the other team from scoring the winning goal.  Well, she succeeded, but took the force of the direct kick right to the head.   She grabbed her head, but stayed in the game.  Fortunately, there was only a minute or two left in the game and they ended in a tie, 1-1, thanks to her.  As we were leaving, she started crying and saying she couldn't see very clearly out of her left eye.  As soon as I pulled into the driveway at home, she started to throwing up and was having difficulty walking.  So, Aaron and I took her to the ER, where they did a CT scan.  Everything came back normal,  and she was diagnosed with a concussion.  She will be out for a few days from soccer.  But, she is feeling tons better.  No more dizziness, headaches or nausea.   

Our church sent her some balloons and a bag full of candy and cookies to help the healing process ;)

The Best $15 I've Ever Spent

I bought this box of play doh at Wal-Mart on clearance the other day.  My kids have gotten many hours of out of it.  I would much rather them doing things like this than sitting in front of the TV, and it was much cheaper than an XBOX or Wii game :).

Just wanted to mention that Sophie scored 4 goals this day, and helped her team win 7-3!   It was her team's first win in 3 seasons!
