About a month ago we found a few used bikes along the side of the road for Caela, Emeth and Annie. Caela’s had a flat tire, so we ordered a new tube. But the day we replaced it, she got a thumbtack stuck in it! Thankfully it was a “self-sealing” tire. And, wow, did it seal.
Everyday they’ve been going down to Flat Iron to practice riding. And they all learned!
Here’s the gang on their bikes (and scooter).
I told them not to smile, and Talia took me seriously.
Then, they each wanted an individual photo.
“Is that the face you want to make in your picture, Annie?”
While they’re riding they’ll eventually head down to the garden to pick any remaining cherry tomatoes, kale, and Brussels sprouts. The last time we went we were surprised to find a sunflower! (I had forgotten I scattered leftover seeds earlier in the Summer.) Here’s Annie with her “Can I pick it?” face.
This morning Emeth woke up before the rest. We walked down the hill to ride again, while the sun rose over the mountains.
It was a beautiful morning.
