After the Fall!

Sarah after the fall

Hi there. As you can see I'm flat on my back in bed. Just yesterday I fell from a giant tree (higher than a two story house). Now this is nothing to brag about because I wasn't supposed to be climbing it in the first place. I was trying to show this boy that girls can climb higher than boys, and I had an accident before I could prove it.

Lessons I Learned 

#1 that Moms and Dads have good reasons for their rules.
#2 that my falling down was NOT a punishment for disobeying-
      it was just a bad accident.
#3, that if YOU ever have an accident, it is really important that  you stay perfectly still on the ground. Do not move at all! 

When the ambulance people came after my accident, they put a giant white collar on my neck, so that I wouldn't be hurt more seriously. If you tap the telephone by my bed, you can see the collar on my stuffed bear! Hope that you'll be careful !  Sarah
