Is it really January?

Kory and I were talking just last night about how wonderful the weather is here. How when we move the #1 thing we will probably miss the most (besides our friends) is the weather. It's the beginning of January and my kids can play outside in tshirts. When Hunter and Maddie get home from school they grab a snack and then head outside to ride bikes with friends. If you noticed, Hunter's pedals are missing. There is a Youtube video about how to teach your kids to ride a bike in a day. You simply take the pedals off so

they focus on balancing instead of peddaling and balancing. Hunter is doing very well and we could probably put his pedals back on. A few weeks ago Maddie crashed and she's been riding the 3wheeler since. She's scared she'll fall again and scrape her knee. One day we'll be able to convine her to get back on!
I bought the 3 wheeler at a garge sale soon after moving into our house. I am so glad I did. This is the most prized after outside possesion we have.
I love living in a cul-de-sac. What little traffic we do get is usually our older neighbors who are very cautious drivers when they see all the kids out on the roads.

Brayden may be too little to ride a bike but he usually gets a few pushes in the stroller up and down the street too. The other day the girls decided to switch him from his stroller to the baby doll stroller. They hit a bump and out came baby which explains the red bump on his head. Poor guy! His sister's do love him.

Rub it in, why don't ya? I made the mistake of checking the weather there a couple days ago. Depressing. Every day Scott and I say how we're moving back. I'm glad Brayden's back to his old self. What a relief to get that over with!
