What have we been doing since this past Friday? Riding bikes!!! Shep and Chad got out Thursday evening and practiced a little and when Shepherd woke up Friday morning, all he wanted to do was ride his bicycle. SO....Friday, Saturday and Sunday have been spent outside making circles around Fleming Island. Rauly is getting the biggest kick out of watching her big brother riding a bicyle all by himself and I can tell she's already itchin' to get out of her bike seat...guess we'll have to go get her a little princess bike. :) There's really nothin' better then being a mommy and seeing your child conquer new tasks with enthusiasm, determination and joy!

That is so great! I feel your mama-pride! He is looking so big and cute as ever! James tried to ride his tricycle today and cried when it was time to put it away. I bet both of us will be spending many days this Spring outside watching our boys ride their bikes!

How cute! ...oh just a reminder - Don't let him ride bare-footed. Ask Melissa why. Have a good week!

I'm so jealous! We just have gravel for a driveway and our street to pretty busy, so we haven't gotten our kids bikes yet. How neat that Shep is such a big boy! Have fun "conquering new tasks!" Love ya!

Yea Shep! I know what you mean. I never thought I'd be so proud of my child being able to reach and grab what she wants, especially her toes! We rejoice in everything, great and small.

Way to go, Shepherd! You look great on your big boy bike!

Linds, I hope you, Chad, and the kids have a happy Valentine's Day. Love y'all!
