what i did when i was a child

Hmm. Is it really human nature to confess something one has done that was explained differently at the time?

I was rollerblading in third grade with two of my friends (one a girl and one a boy) in Christiancy Elementary School's parking lot. I wanted to show off to the two of them, especially the boy, so I tried to do the splits with my rollerblades on. Of course anyone who has ever worn any of those knows that you cannot bend your ankles so to attempt this was just stupidity. Instead of moving my legs out a few inches at a time while standing still, I decided proceeded to do the splits while rolling (very slowly). The wheel of my rollerblades hit a rock and I came to a "screeching halt" throwing my body forward and my chin right down into a rock. This rock decided to wedge itself into my chin and had to be removed and the skin stitched back up. Of course I didn't tell ANYONE this happened because I was showing off.

The Alaina Joy Fundraiser

hey everyone, I hope you have been enjoying your summer. I have been most busy so sorry for not posting as often as I normally do.

This weekend some of my family is having a fundraiser to raise money for their daughter to have a procedure called PERCs (selective percutaneous myofascial lengthening). It is an outpatient surgery that lengthens tight muscles. This would greatly increase Alaina’s mobility potential by allowing her muscles to be stretched more than ever before. If these muscles are not stretched, they will shorten permanently, which could cause bone deformities. We have seen firsthand the marvelous results of kids who have undergone the PERCs procedure.

Go take a look at the blog: http://www.thealainajoyfundraiser.blogspot.com/
and if you are in the area, stop by the carnival!
