An early birthday gift

Over the course of several weeks now, I've been asking Will what he wants for his birthday.  He has maintained that he wants a bike.  The description has changed: a big bike, a blue bike, a red bike, a Bob the Builder bike, etc.

We weren't quite sure if he was ready, so Mike took him to some stores to let him try them out.  Apparently he did well, so it was decided that Will would get a bike for his birthday.  In fact, he'd get it a month early. IMG_4230

We're still working out the kinks.  Sometimes he forgets how to use the brakes.   Sometimes he goes way too fast.  Sometimes he's more interested in making sure everyone's watching him, that he forgets to look where he's going.

But, really, he's doing so great.  I honestly can't believe that he's riding a real bike already.

Whoa! I know you said your Mom lived on China Grove Court, but it looks like she lives exactly where we lived...we were at 6537. Is she close by there? Check out our old cherry tree...one of my favorite trees ever!
