first bike ride!

Richard went for his first bike ride of the year this afternoon. He had been riding around in the garage the last couple of days and was eager to go for a real bike ride. Our driveway is deep slush. They plowed the slush and snowpack off the road this afternoon. After we finished our work outside, he went and got his bike. He was halfway down the drive before we could get to him. He rode down (with help through the slush) then went to the neighbor’s driveway then back and most of the way to the neighbor’s the other way without help (other than the training wheels). He did much better this year than last. He only fell twice today. Last year he fell a lot. After we get through this rush of spring work and chores maybe we can go as a family to a bike path. Not sure what to do about little Karen though.
