Bye, Bye Training Wheels...and Hello Kindergarten!

So, I don't know what took us so long to take off the training wheels of Aana's bike. Mostly my fear, I guess...and my feeble attempt to protect my daughter from the increased possibilty of road rash and broken bones...but Larry decided to take the matter in his own hands. I went outside to leave and he had taken the training wheels off...and she was riding down the road. It was done!

I don't know why I was expecting it to be more like a ceremony...where we take about bike safetly, give her a pep talk...and run beside her for a long time to steady her and help her practice, but... It took less than five minutes and it is over! No major accidents yet, and I keep counting my blessings that we live near a queit culdesac so I don't have to worry as much.

Also...Aana had her first official day of school today and she was trilled! She has been dying to go to school and is just dissapointed that it is only a half day. There were no tears...for either of us...because I knew how excited she was... I am just amazed at how fast kids grow!

Hooray for Aana! She looks so beautiful for her first day of school! Way to go on the bike! Poor Lydia doesn't even have a bike yet (thanks to her nervous Mom!)

I see Anna has a new backpack. The most essential school supply ever!! I wonder what we did without them in my school days?

Way to go Aana! Another milestone accomplishment achieved.

I love the Fire Frenzy song on your playlist. Never heard that version, but I love it!

Have fun camping!

Ooops, the almost lover by a Fine Frenzy.

And I just wanted to say how cute Aana was in those pictures for her first day! The hair, cute, ..clothes, cute....accesories, cute. Did she naturally pose that way? or did you help her?
She's a natural beauty that one.
