So as you all know I am one of those awesome moms that look forward to the 1st day of school!!

It's not that I don't like my kids (cause I really do love them), but I do enjoy the break!

This year is crazy for us because we have kids now at ALL 3 schools, since they moved the Jr. High back to the High School.

Tristen is in 7th (weird), Eva is in 4th, Porter and Michael are the BIG kids at Mtn. Meadows in 3rd, Amelia is in 2nd, and Zach and Paul are in Kindergarden.

I got thinking that by the time Tristen is a Senior in High School ALL 12 of our kids will be in school!!!...crazy thought huh?!

SEE...I'm not the only one excited for the 1st day of school:)

Poor Paul!!...NOT for weak stomachs...

If you have a weak stomach you may not want to view the following!!!
There is NEVER a dull moment around our house!! Last night while I was just finishing up fixing dinner Porter came running in the house SCREAMING..."MOM, PAUL'S HEAD IS BLEEDING AND THERE IS BLOOD EVERYWHERE!!!'
So I grabbed a clean towel out of the drawer and went running outside.
At first when I got to Paul, he of course had blood everywhere, but as you know head injuries bleed WAY bad! So...I applied pressure to it (not yet knowing how bad it was) and when I took the towel back off I about passed out!!
This is what I found...
These pics were taken with Brandon's cell phone from the ER

This one makes me sooooo sick!!
Well 32 stitches later...

The poor kid was playing at Aunt Jami's on the trailer they have parked in their driveway and he was playing with the tailgate and it fell right on his head!!
