We had quite the First Friday last week… Well, all two minutes of it anyway.
(Click for a larger picture.)
It was quite a shame. After eating dinner at Manny’s, we walked down to the First Friday festivities. We had just watched the woman who paints herself silver and acts like a statue — when Josiah gave her a dollar, she moved and startled him: it was pretty funny. Then, we moved on to watch a band play. Josiah was having a blast. Then it happened. While Josiah was balancing on a tire stop in the parking lot where the band was playing, he tried to jump off (special thanks to Dad’s goading). When Josiah did this, his shoe stuck to the concrete and, in that instant, he was face down on the parking lot. Much bleeding ensued.
Josiah was over it in about ten minutes, but he’s had quite a scabbed up face for the last few days — very sad.
Anyway, there have been so many developments since the last post: Josiah tells stories, he helps feed Indy the dog, he rides his tricycle all over the place, he’s got a trampoline…he makes coffee. Really. It’s great.
We’ve also gone to many events and fun things around the city: Crown Center stuff, the circus, etc. We’ve really ended the summer on a high note. (Well, except for that little scrape up there.)
We’ll try to catch everyone up soon!
