Matthew's scary moment


We had a scary thing happen today. Today I took the boys to a little park. As we were getting ready too leave Matthew decided he would walk close to the little river type thing they had there. I tried to stop him before he got too close. Well, I did not realize that the edge of the water was so close. By the time I reached him he had fallen in the water. At first I did not think it was going to be too bad he would just get right back up and I would pull him out. However, the water was a lot deeper then I thought. I had to jump in and get my poor dear Matthew out. It was really scary seeing you son struggling to get up out of the water. I was so afraid that he was going to drown. I am glad was able to get him out. He was pretty scared. This reminds me of the time my mom jumped into my Aunt Mary Jane and Uncle Bill's pool to save me. She had her dress on.
