Fun at the Bike Rodeo

by Lisa Douglas

Every year the elementary school puts on a “Bike Rodeo” to help ensure the kids are safe when riding their bikes. They ensure their tires are inflated properly, and look good, that their helmets fit well, and that they ride safely, teaching hand signals and testing their abilities. It is so sweet and adorable to witness. The kids always are so excited to show off their bikes to their friends.

Somebody missed her sister very much..

It’s always so hard to go back home after visiting the school. I hate leaving my kids again after visiting them, it feels like somebody is ripping out my heart.

Baby Dude was pretty upset that he couldn’t partake in the rodeo, so he dazzled us on his bike when we got home. Remember, this guy just learned to ride his bike not even two weeks ago. And now this:

My heart is full.
