Ride Your Bike to School Day
Today was Walk or Ride your bike to school day. Gavin has been so excited and anxiously awaiting this day for awhile now. I wish we could ride our bikes every day, but we have this little baby girl who is a sleepy head and sleeps in. But today, I promised G we would wake her up and ride our bikes. It all started out great, until Ellie half way there, could no longer ride her bike and I was on my bike which only has the baby seat- not trailer. It was a LONG walk/ride to school with lots of screaming and crying from a little four year old. I wish I had on camera the looks we were getting. Poor G.....I don't think this morning was what he had in mind. And Poor Ellie, she was an absolute wreck. I ended up walking my bike with Hadley strapped in, Ellie beside me and let Gavin go ahead of us. We just parked Ellie's bike in the grass and left it there until our way back when we once again walked the bikes home. Fun times. So this afternoon I made sure to ride Frank's bike which has the bike trailer on it. Much better. Much better. We met Gav outside of school and rode home like a normal family this afternoon. He loved it. We've been home for thirty minutes and he is already asking when we are riding our bikes to school again. Does he not remember this morning?!? Guess it wasn't as bad as I thought it was.
