Bike Rider

Today Eliana learned to ride a bike. She went around our neighborhood pond three times. She still can't get started by herself, but with a little something to stabilize her to get started, she's off.

This newfound competency was met with such humble expressions as
  • I'm doing it. I'm doing it.
  • Whoohoo!
  • I am the greatest bike rider ever!
  • I'm a five year old!
  • I need to tell Josie about this.
  • I am an excellent rider!

It appears she got my sense of humility. (The preceding sentence caused Elizabeth to cackle.)

To think I considered staying in to watch some silly basketball game tonight instead of taking the monster out.
