Max's New Bike

Max got his first bike!  He rode it all the way to Keely's house the other day with Abram.  Abram later told me that while Max was riding he was saying, "Mommy is going to be so proud of me.  She's going to be so proud of me she is going to get me a trophy."  Abram and were both impressed that he made it all the way over there.  Abram was less impressed when he had to carry the bike all the way back home.

I'm pretty sure the trophy thing came up because he recently found a bunch of Uncle Garrett's old basketball trophies in the basement.  Max has been fascinated with Uncle Garrett since his last visit.  Whenever we talk about how healthy food will help him grow up, he wants to know if it will make him grow up at big as Uncle Garrett.  And when telling Max the story of David and Goliath, we were able to put Goliath into perspective by explaining that he was even bigger than Uncle Garrett.

Aida is going to flip when I show her this picture. She got a new bike this weekend and is itching for people to ride with. She now wakes Jamie up in the morning to do a ride before school!

So I showed the picture of Max and his new bike to Aida this afternoon. Her response? "That is great! Mom, how long do you think it would take me to bike to Max's house?"
