She can fly, she can fly, she can fly...

Tonight when we went for our walk to pick up a dear lady's mail, the kids and I stopped off at the park. Steve walked on to her house with the dog and then met us back at the park.
Meanwhile, Olivia who loves to slide on the slide - since preschool... and she's pretty confident of herself - was managing the slide as well as her little brother. And had taken the slide several times very successfully. She had on a little sundress and was trying to get the skirt under her bottom to slide more efficiently! We had talked about the "how to" of getting the skirt under her, and she was working on it when she took off for the bottom.
You can probably tell where this is going already... she didn't make it to the bottom of the slide, however she did manage to do a flip in the air and land (some how) on her arm instead of her head... I let out a yell that any mother would have... Steve came running to help out. Olivia got up and was crying at this point - I'm sure because she needed too! And trying to say that she was just fine and wanted to go down the slide again... I checked for anything that would be out of place and found nothing, except for a scraped up arm with a few scratches that hardly warranted a band-aid!
Tonight she is resting fine, with a band-aid on her elbow... not that she needed it, but more that she wanted one. We are thankful that she is fine... her guardian angel was on full time duty tonight! PTL!

Oh my goodness! I'm glad she didn't break her arm. I thought that was what you were going to say!
