Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.
~John F. Kennedy, U.S. president~
Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.
Sarah has a new passion....... Bike Riding!
About two weeks ago she tossed aside the little red tricycle to upgrade to the new big girl bike (with training wheels for now) and we have spent morning, noon, and night outside with her as she pedals until her heart's content.
This weekend we took her to a local bike park that has an inner and outer loop. I tried to guide her through the inner loop (the shorter one) and she said NO WAY.... I want to go on the "other road"
Not only did she make her way around the "other road" once, she went around twice!
She is having so much fun on that bike and Pat and I get the biggest kick out of watching her go! She is really growing up before our eyes.......... and as she is quick to point out these days, that she is not a baby anymore, she is officially "The Big Sister"
Although.... after she says that she is the big sister, she has to let us know that she is not going to share her bike with Reagan because she will be too little to ride it.....LOL!
I think this is all finally becoming real for Sarah..... as she sees the nursery coming together and closets and drawers filled with blankets and clothes, she is realizing that this little girl is coming!
Yesterday when we woke up, she looked at me and said, "Mommy, are you going to China today to bring home my sister?" I couldn't help but smile......and I said, "Not today honey, but hopefully she will be coming home very soon."
I think Sarah is ready for her new role and I believe she is going to make a GREAT big sister:)
