At first there were just dark clouds and light thunder but we didn’t see lightning. We thought maybe we could walk a little bit up the trail.
But within five minutes the lightning had started and increasing so we decided to head home. The lightning was practically right over us!
The lightning got bigger so my kids took off running back to the car, scared. I was telling them to stop but also laughing at how panicked they’d become.
I bought this new Ergo on sale at Target for only $60!! Allan needed one for Ember when we go on hikes. She always cries that she’s tired and he ends up holding her in his arms!
So then Ember, who I’d just seconds before told to stop running, had a major trip! She skid in the gravel a bit and got her arm scraped really badly. It was so, so sad 🙁
At home she screamed when I cleaned it (as quickly as I could!) before putting on bandaids. Poor girl!!
I was holding her and hugging her after and telling her she was so brave!
When Allan got home later I was telling him how brave she’d been while I was cleaning her owie. I turned to her (in my arms) and said, “Right?”
Her eyes got huge and she shakes her head and says, “No, I wasn’t brave at all. I was scared and screaming!!”
lol! Which was true! haha
