Any given afternoon when we get home together, a familiar chorus rings out: "Mommy, can we go biking?" G-Bear is trying her bike without training wheels. E-Bear is storming the pavement, speeding away with courage. Buddy Bear has switches off between trying his strider and pedaling the trike. J-Bear is content in the backpack.
I love taking my kids to the nearby quad and watching them speed around, free as birds. I am thankful that they love their helmets (an affection I never developed as a child) and for their bravery and persistence when they fall down. We're a cautious group, but a determined one!
I can't wait for warmer weather and summer days. Hopefully we'll see some training-wheel free biking, some striding, and maybe even a bike for me.......we'll see :)
