bicycle boy.

It's that time of your life, little boy.
We promise not to let go until you are ready.Sometimes you learn best though, when the mistakes are allowed to happen.
Get back on that horse, little boy!
And don't look back!


20 minutes later, it became a one man show.

Great photos, I love the one with the long shadows! Very artistic and if I could paint people, I would. Right now it is just flowers, birds, etc. But someday!

What a great series of pictures! I was cheering right along for him!

Oh, it's almost time to get Meeka off of the trainers... I sort of don't want to. It's like losing the bottle, or graduating to underwear. It's just another little evidence that my baby is growing up. I registered her for Kindersteps today. Oh, sad day.

:(

But she will be such a beautiful girl in her baptism dress, at girl's camp, on the Stake Dancefloor, singing in the choir, exiting the Temple in her gown, holding her own baby, and taking off her daughter's training wheels. Oh, happy days ahead.
