Biking to School

This morning, Nicholas woke me up and reminded me that last night I told him that today we would practice riding our bikes to school so that we knew how long it would take us in the mornings after vacation was over.

So, that’s just what we did today. It took about 25 minutes, the longest part of which was getting up the first little bit of hill around the corner from our house. After that it was relatively smooth sailing, although he insisted on stopping a block from school when he heard the train coming so that he could turn around and watch.

After lunch, he asked me what day it was and I said “Wednesday”. Then he counted off the days until Monday and said “I can’t wait until Monday so we can ride to school!”

Neither can I.
