That happened how?

Brick Pillar: 1
Eric: 0
Eric is the 11-year-old Scout leader at church. Last week they had a scavenger hunt type activity at the church.. but it gets dark really early these days. After they activity I believe they were playing tag (in the dark). Eric was chasing one of the boys and well....the pillar got in his way.

The pillar won.You can see where his scout shirt ended,
by the straight line at top.

Eric was trying to think of a good story to tell his co-workers. I suggested some deranged cat was attacking one of our kids and he saved the day.

His story involved a man with a gun and a hold up at the grocery store.

I told him they would never believe his story.

He didn't care.

No wonder why my kids like telling crazy stories.

Have you heard any good stories lately?

Plus I got an award from Sarah at Cottage Garden Studio
She created this award and gives it out to
1. To Bloggers who encourage and nurture others bloggers to explore and grow in their creative, spiritual or mental lives.
2. To Bloggers who are blooming and growing creatively, spiritually or mentally in their lives & sharing it on their blogs.

She wrote the following beautiful (but embarrassing) tribute:
"Yup I like Emmy too!! I follow a lot of women my own age and some follow me. I have a few young Moms - I love that! Emmy, well she is not only an amazing Mom..but an amazing woman!! She supports up all around her and offers such open comments and caring! I have watched her bloom on her blog and offer up real pieces of herself there. She is one of those young women you hope your daughters turn out to be!! I should be so blessed!! She is also someone I consider a friend!"
Thank you Sarah I was very honored.


  1. LOL I love to make great stories about my "war wounds" That looks like a bad case of road rash. lol

    Congrats on your award, how sweet!!

  2. That looks like he got into a fight with a really mean brick pillar. Ouch!

  3. sean is the scout master and came home with a huge scar from his knee up his entire thigh. a scout jabbed him with a pointy stick in a game they were playing. merderma every day three times a day for 8 weeks. that's what the tube says.

  4. Ouch! I hope next time it is a softer pillar, or that he wins at least. In regards to the award, I think that is one of the sweetest things I have ever heard anyone say about anyone else! And the best part? It is all true.

  5. At least it wasn't his head that got the war wound!
    Congrats on the award! I found you from Sarah's after reading that she passed this on to you...so glad she did!

  6. It's true pictures speak a thousand words, but that one can be summed up in one simple word: OWWWWWWIEEEEEEEEEEEE! Holy cow, that looks PAINFUL! Like it must burn. I like the crazy cat idea. haha.

    ***Congrats on the award! What an amazing tribute!!***

  7. I love that he is still willing to play chase in the dark with 11 year olds!! I think that's just too sweet. He's a keeper :)

    Congratulations on the award. Everyone deserves to hear something warm and special about themselves sometimes. You definitely deserve it.

  8. Congrats on another award! That's great.

  9. Poor Eric, owchie!

    Nice award, you deserve it for sure!

  10. Ouch! No fun!

    Congrats. Awards just make you feel loved, don't they?

  11. I'd go with cat scratch fever myself.

    And what a lovely award and nice things she said about you. : )

  12. LOL! Boys never do grow up do they? I guess that's part of what makes them fun though :)

    Congratulations on your award.

  13. Ow, that looked like it hurt a bit. The deranged cat/ armed robbery stories are hilarious though. Quite the imagination you guys have. I'm sure your kids get the best bedtime stories!

    Congrats on the award!

  14. Well, he WAS playing with scouts, right?! haha Love the new blog by the way! :)
