Weekend Accomplishments

On Saturday Joe removed the training wheels from Jack's bicycle. Jack was a little very unhappy about it. There were a lot of tears. Taylor tried to help him keep his balance.

At first there were a lot of scenes like this:

and this:


But, within an hour or two, he was riding like a pro. (I can't even take a picture because he zooms by so quickly!) Now I can't get him off his bike for dinner, his bath, etc. In fact, I think he wore his bike helmet during dinner last night so he could go right back out. (Or was that Carter?)

On Saturday I was also able to squeeze in a little bit of sewing time. I finished a cape and crown for Timmy and have it all ready to be mailed to him. I would have mailed it yesterday, but when I got to the post office, they were closed for lunch. (Yes, our post office closes for lunch. A little crazy, huh?)

Way to go, Jack! Do you have any tips for Aidin, who refuses to take off her training wheels?

And love the cape and crown. Happy Birthday, Timmy!

Well done Jack.

Wait until he wants to wear the helmut to bed, so he can ride as soon as he gets up!

Does it make you a little sad? It's another sign that he's growing up. But what a great big brother he has to help him out. You have great kids!

At least he was falling on the nice, soft grass! How great is it that he now loves it! My son can ride, but still needs help stopping and starting. He'll get there one day, I'm sure.
