Don't be fooled by this photo! Kyler did his usual complaining this morning...too bad I didn't invest in those ear plugs! I made buttermilk pancakes (MY FAVORITE!!!!) we also had blueberries and strawberries and some leftover bananablueberry muffins from yesterday afternoon. Kyler told me yesterday that he really did not like yesterday's snack. Then this morning I heard how much he didn't like buttermilk pancakes. But he still ate one, but that may have been under threat....whatever! He's now getting ready for school and I'm counting down the minutes to peace and quiet! (is that wrong?!?) We did meet our goal though: family prayer, family breakfast and family scripture study...what more can I ask!
Now on to last Saturday's news:
We had never made the attempt and he was not interested, but I felt it was time! I thought he would appreciate going to the park to learn. (grass=softer fall) But he didn't agree. Colton did his best with him.
So did Asher!
Then Tony got him riding a little bit around the playground. Once I realized he wouldn't be back on the grass I suggested we just go home and practice in the cul-de-sac.
Here's Kyler standard pose lately....well, minus the hand signs. I wish I was able to get a picture of him riding, but trust me....HE CAN RIDE NOW! We're so excited for this boy and all the freedom that comes with this new talent! He comes home everyday asking to ride his bike. I love it! Anything to help wear him out is a HUGE BLESSING!

Oh how those photos of kids wearing shorts, playing at the park... makes me long for a visit to the Valley of the Sun! Great accomplishment Kyler! Very exciting stuff! I'll take buttermilk pancakes any day, everyday, day or night, especially if someone is making them for me!

WOW! Love that he is riding a bike. I am promising myself that I will teach Nick in the spring, but really, where is he going to ride it at my house? Love the park pictures, so sunny. Can't wait to see you in 6 weeks!
Awesome job Kyler!
