Vacation Cancelled

Remember that time I was so proud of not letting the children drown in the ocean?

And making such good progress home, I thought we could make one more playground stop and then just push through and be home?

And then Anber got stung by a bee right in the corner of her eye, and by a wasp on her eyelid?

And then Alex got bit by a snake through his shoe?

And then Barrett fell in the mud, and Kirk tripped and fell off a slide, and Kyrie got stuck in the playground?

All in three minutes.

And now I’m done.

Many thanks to our NP for treatment help, and Nathan for talking to crying children while I played triage.

We are less than an hour from Dallas, so we will stop and rest for the night!

And everybody gets an ice pack.

It’s the coolest thing to happen since Krispy Kreme.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
