Hello Fellow Bloggers!

For the past three weekends we have been camping and ATVing and I think I have had my fill of camping this summer.  Just takes the stuffing out of you.  Not so much as the camping but the riding.  My favorite part is sitting in my little recliner chair, under our camper awning with a good book on my lap and a soda by my side...also with the knowledge that Dani is having a good time playing with her cousins and riding.  But each trip doesn't go without an incident.  An incident which proves that these kids live constantly with the wicked FASD!

As one of Dani's rules, she would ride our ATV down the path, just a little ways, to the out-house.  Last weekend, as she was coming back, some jerk, and I say that lightly because I am trying to be polite, came up behind her, reving his atv motor, scaring her half to death to where she rode our atv off a little ledge into the creek.  No major damage to the vehicle but she cut her knees up pretty good.  I as so mad I got on my sister in law's atv and went looking for the idiot but luckily my husband stopped me.  I was so MAD!  It was a pretty good ledge too, but it shows that these kids have no reaction time when startled.  They can't think and react as fast as they need to.  That is one of the reasons why Dani's doctor told her and us that she should not drive.  Scared me and her.  My sweet husband handled it perfectly.  Dani was so scared that dad was mad at her, but he wasn't.  We were sitting in camping when we heard someone screaming "HELP".  The men got up and ran and sure enough, they found Dani.  Mike made sure she was okay and nothing was broken and my niece brought her back to camp, that is when I went hunting for the creep.  Just glad that weekend is over.

So now, it's back to sheer bordom for Dani.  I am back to work, my sweet husband is back on the rode and we keep looking forward to the next time we can get out of town.  It does our family good to get away for at least a couple of days.

The two pictures is of Dani with her Uncle Don and the other one with her cousing Shawn.

Safety vs getting to feel normal... That is a tough one!
