So I am not really sure what this says about my rad parenting skills or about Halle.... does this mean that she is just proving to be a 'Schramm' or is it more that I suck and dont pay attention? hmmmm not sure. One thing is for sure: we are the winners for most random/freak reasons to need urgent care and staples in the head. Here are some that I can remember right now... Garrett ran into a doorknob and gashed his head open. Tait tipped backwards on his bigwheel into the grass and hit the only pointy rock for miles around...big hole. Garrett climbing a tree hit his head on what was trying to be a new branch... big hole. Garrett and tait fighting-taits head hit dresser corner. Garrett slipped on a toy and hit his head on the stair railing. I know there are many more because one year ( when tait and garrett were 2 & 3) we visited the ER 15 times! AWESOME! And we have been many times since. I am on DFAS's watch list. So anyway, yesterday halle got into the car and I turned to get bags out of the cart and the next thing I knew she was screaming on the ground next to the grocery cart. *sigh* I think she hit the cart somehow. Heads sure bleed alot. I couldnt really tell how big the cut was because the entire back of her hair was red and gross... notice the dribble down the shirt. So since we were on the way to a dr. appt anyway... we just drove a little faster. After they cleaned her up she only needed one staple, but the hole was pretty deep. I for one am grateful for staples.... less pain than stitches and no need to shave the head around the wound. yeah!

May...the recap.

I am not very good about posting often so I thought I'd give you a quick review of the busy May that we had: Halle learned to make this beautiful new face. She calls it "rude".
Sarah went to her end of year 9th grade "black & white" dance. It was all very official and fancy except for the fact that she and her bff "kennys" (kennedy) ruined the look by wearing converse.
We always love going to the LeBaron's house... who wouldn't? they have a bowling ally in their basement, a full size tennis court, two huge pirate ships in the backyard that you can have water cannon fights on, not to mention the trampoline surrounded by 5 or 6 gym/wrestling mats. The newest attraction is sumo wrestling. It was pretty funny to watch and the boys had a blast... chad hasnt finished the adult suits so it was just the kids... for now. The Buhler's were there too so there was total of 18 kids running around... very loud and crazy.

Tanner graduated from 6th grade. Can you believe he will be going to jr. high? yikes. He wants everyone to know that he still hates girls. so no need to worry there, I guess.
That' about it. Maybe I will post more often.... but probably not.


This week the weather has been sooo nice (between 65 and 75) so today we took advantage of the nice cool air and went to the zoo! We usually end up going in July when it is 99 degrees and it is miserable and smelly. But today it was great... only 71 and overcast. Also, instead of panting and sweating and looking half dead, most of the animals were out and about. This was Halle's first time at the zoo and she thought it was pretty cool. The best was when she called the zebras "Marty"!
