Tuesdays Tails and Tales...


Oh my gosh friends - you caught me running late - seems these days it's my normal.  Maybe I'll be catching up soon though.  Grandson started middle school alright and I thank you for your prayers - he loved it.  Even the uniform was okay. Phew.

He did start it with stitches.  Sunday night - right before we were to leave for MYF - he went to grandpa's workbench - with grandpa down there.  He wanted to make something to take with him.  Well when grandpa wasn't looking he took one of grandpa's knives.  Now picture this grandpa was putting tabs on his new Bible for school and all of a sudden blood flew over his head all over him and the Bible - like it was raining blood.  Guess grandson took and flew his hand back for some reason.

Grandpa was shocked to say the least.  Turned around and grandson was running upstairs to the bathroom.  Daughter and I were upstairs and her hub yelling to come down.  Never a good sign.

Well we tried to close it up for about an hour - but every time he lowered it - it started bleeding again.  Off to the emergency room for stitches.  He started school yesterday with stitches.  He was pretty brave though - but a hard way to start middle school.  lol

We had open house last Thursday night.  Friday we went and decorated his lockers (he got two) with UGA Bulldog items.  His mom - his good mom - color coded all his books and notebook and schedule.  On Saturday they had a swim party get together for six graders and he got to meet all his classmates!! 

Sunday morning he got captured in Sunday school by the youth group and got taken to McDonald's for breakfast. Then they silly tied them - all a good initiation into youth group for next Sunday.

Then there was the hospital visit - so you see - I tell you all this to let you know I am not goofing around when I say I was busy.  lol

Tomorrow I'll give you some more deTAILS about my grandson's first day.  Again thanks for your prayers.

That is my tale for the day.  And since I love to goof around here is my tail for the day.  Isn't it cute?

 So this is my tale on Tuesday's tail, about a tail. 

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

Love, chatty tail - oops, I mean crone.

Oh, my goodness. I hope that wasn't his writing hand. (Sorry, I still think like a teacher.) It sounds like he's had a good start to the school year/church year. That's great.

Except for the stitches it sounds like a great start to your grandson's school year. I'm babysitting for one of my grandson's today, a two year old. Mom and dad are teachers and had to get ready for the new school year. I'll have the little 2 month old one later this afternoon too. Should be fun. Hope your Tuesday is terrific!

Nothing like getting the bad stuff out of the way, right? I hope his first week sets the tone for a wonderful year at his new school. Later this mishap will become a great story to tell. Right now, I'm just glad he is ok and the rest of you survived.
