This weekend made me long for spring to be here. The weather was nice enough for the kids to ride their bikes and be outside longer. The younger two were eager to try out their new Strider bikes that they received for Christmas (you can read more about what a balance bike is by clicking the link above).
Doesn’t she look cute in her Duckie helmet? She did very well for her first time riding a bike. She still has a little difficulty steering, but that will change with practice.
After playing outside for awhile, I went in and checked the weather report. It said that it was supposed to be an even nicer day out the next day. I told the kids that we’d go to the park and ride bikes there. When we got up in the morning and looked out the window– small snowflakes greeted us. Ummm, I think someone got the forecast wrong! It’s been 2 days of cold weather—winter is back. Those two nice days this weekend were teasing me—making me think that just maybe we’d have a mild winter. I’m ready to be outside and work in my garden. I’m longing for some sunshine instead of these dreary, overcast days. Oh spring, come quickly!
