Just one of the best weeks.....

It is amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.  On Tuesday, Kendall's kindergarten class had a play and talent show.  Kendall's talent was hula hooping.  She is amazing at it....those tiny hips can make a hoop fly.  Physics is mind boggling some times.  Well, some of the other kids road their bicycles as their talent.  Well, let's just say that peer pressure can be insanely motivating because I kid you not, that girl of mine got home that night, pulled the bike out, removed the training wheels and taught herself to ride in about a course of 30 minutes.  Now last summer she had learned right at the end of summer but then we moved and up at the cabin didn't really have a good space to ride bikes so I think she forgot that she had done it then.  But seriously, the grin on her face of learning to ride her bike was worth more than 800 gifts on Mothers Day.  Well, if that wasn't enough, the little brother was not going to just sit back while his sister experienced this new freedom....we pulled the training wheels off his bike and in two days, he was whipping circles around the drive-way.  I seriously could not be more proud of them.  When I was a kid, a bicycle was a necessity.  It was our freedom.  We rode to the library, the gas station, to the dippers, to the my first job.  Everywhere. 

So on this most beautiful Mother's Day, I offer you some pictures of the last few days.
