Shedding the Dust Bunnies with a Rite of Passage!

It's time. It's past time. Shield your eyes while I take a deep breath and blow the dust from my blog! There's no better reason than to share the recent success of my moonbeams!

Here are Dayton (6) and Ellie (5) last week. They both learned to ride 2 wheelers with their Dad and Mommy Amy and they are both quite proud of themselves...but not as proud as I am!

I remember learning to ride a bike. I had a Huffy with a banana seat. It was called the 'Desert Rose' and it was hot! We were at my Grandparents under the yellow 'Puerto Rican' patio outback. My Dad would hold onto the back of my bike and gently push me through the grass. He gave me enough momentum that I could peddle. I would jut go around the house and needed him to catch me each time I came back around. I was scared to death of falling and couldn't work the breaks!

I remember the trust I had in him, the patience he had in me and the sheer excitement of it all. It was such a strong feeling of success and accomplishment. I must have rode around the house 30+ times...and each time he was there to catch me. I LOVE YOU, POPSICLE!!!!

On the B Side: The weather has been absolutely beautiful! The kids have been full of energy and enjoying the sunshine. I love seeing the world all over again through their precious eyesand I love to see them learn, grow and experience life. xoxo

So neat (wish my computer was full running so I could see the vid)! My little one has recently learned to ride his tricycle... pretty cool... eventually I'll blog about it. I love it though... he's growing so fast!
