Thursday night we arrived early at the park to set up for VBS. Within 5 minutes I heard a cry and we turned around and Dakota was under a tipped over table with water jugs all around him. He had been trying to get a drink and I assume pulled on the jug enough to tip the table on his face. I had to have his dad take him to Urgent Care for stitches while I tried to keep the other umpteen kids VBS-ing and try to calm Wyatt down because he was wigging out over the injury. I didn't want up the drama by our whole family (plus the extra boy I brought) making chaos in the waiting room (We've been asked to leave before). It was better to keep it calm with just dad there.
The best part about the night was when Dakota returned with his three stitches in his eyebrow - we ran to each other and I scooped him up and welcomed him back. I told him our neighbor was there and she was making him a tie-dye shirt and asked if he wanted to finish it? He said yes! What a trooper. He went right back to the activities and on with life.
