new bike rider

Rahul decided that this was the weekend Samantha was going to learn how to ride her bike. I tried this summer but failed miserably. I could not get beyond her thought process of “I do not want to learn to ride my bike because you are eventually going to take the training wheels off. ” Duh! Isn’t that the whole point of riding a bike? She was reluctantly eager after watching Aidan and a few of her friends at the Swim for Smiles triathlon, but still not ready to take the plunge.  Rahul offered a special reward (I suggested an item from….haha) and today was the day. I went to work and Rahul went to work with the task of getting Samantha to learn to ride a bike. Here are some pics of what I came home to after work –


DSC_5141Samantha said I was a good teacher but not a very good bike teacher. This is why kids are meant to have 2 parents….when one cannot succeed, the other one is there to help out. I am so lucky to be married to a great husband who compliments me in so many ways!

In other news, we have grass in the front woods. Just barely, but it is there!
