They grow up this fast?

C-Man posing for his "first day of pre-school" picture!

The best shot I could get! The training wheels are pushed all the way up off the ground.

C-man has been riding this little bike now for a few summers and has basically mastered as much as you can master on a bike this size with training wheels. He was even starting to pop wheelies! He decided that he would try no training wheels about a week ago. Bruce took of the little training wheels and we walked up to the church parking lot. Bruce ran behind him and he just did it! He didn't fall or anything. He had a few wobbles and needed help on take-offs, but he pretty much just did it! A few days later I told him to go out and start practicing and I would get my shoes and be right out. Before I got out I saw him through the window riding just fine. He just taught himself to start out by himself!

On Wednesday he had his first day of pre-school! He was so excited he woke up at 2:00 a.m. and wanted to know if he was later for school yet! This kid has been watching the elementary bus stop out our front window since he was 2. One day when he was younger he came crying to me. I asked what was wrong and he said "Mom, the bus left me!" The whole family was so excited for C-man's big day at school. Miss Becky is in for a great year!

Can I send Miss M over and C-man can teach her to ride her bike?! He's such a little stud!

What a stud! If he's anything like the brother I grew up with, just about everything will be easy and come naturally. I love the back pack picture.
