First Grade and Preschool.

Tomorrow everybody goes back to school.

Grace to the first grade and
Frankie to three day a week preschool!

Tonight at bedtime, Frankie asked me "if I was going to miss them in the house".
I said, "Yes, of course I'm going to miss you in the house".

Then he gave me "a great big squeeze and a kiss on yours nose".
I love how he always says, "yours".

It does seem so hard to believe that summer is over.
The days are getting cooler and the leaves are already changing.
Sigh.

Check back tomorrow for First Day of School pictures.

Until then, here's the Crazies.
Grace with the fish bonker
and
Frankie's pirate face, ARRRRAAAGH!

Fun Family Biking.

Today was a great day.

About a month ago, Frank and I decided Frankie was totally ready to take off his training wheels. To the point where they were slowing him down.
He got the hang of it right away.

Then we thought to ourselves, Frankie is four, Grace should totally be doing this.
So we took hers off too.

We (Frank) had to "work" with her a little more, but she finally got it.



We spent some time practicing in parking lots, found a couple incline/declines for practicing uphill pedaling and downhill breaking...

Until...

Today, this was my view.


I have been dreaming of this day where we would all go bike riding together.
It was awesome.
The weather was perfect;
we went biking on Campbell Creek Trail.

One last shot of Frankie, resting off trail while he and I waited for Grace and Frank to catch up.

ps. At one point we were riding past a lake. Grace, being Grace, "lost control" of her bike and drove off trail, almost going into the drink. As I was helping her up, I told her I was so glad she didn't drive into the lake. Now, her reply was hilarious. Imagine her, 100% serious. She says, "Yeah, me too. I'm not wearing my swimsuit". I'm still laughing as I type this. Classic Grace.
