Tyra learns to ride a 2-wheeler!

Last week when I said I was going for a walk around the lake everyone decided to come along. I pushed the girls in the stroller (with Lily on her scooter much of the time) trying to keep up with Thomas who was on Tyra's old bike with training wheels. Tom stayed back on the flat straight road leading to the lake (no cars) with Tyra on a bide that doesn't have training wheels. As we came around the lake loop we saw Tyra riding the bike with Tom running behind touching her shoulder "He's my magic feather like in Dumbo" Tyra told us. She still wanted her magic feather. But then a few days ago they went down again and came back with Tyra doing it all on her own! Only thing she did wrong was not fall down and scrape her knees, which I had told her she had to expect as part of learning!! She's now doing loops easily up and down our driveway non-stop!

Let's Go Fly a Kite!!

Tyra has been enjoying flying kites whenever it's the perfect March weather. Tom got the great idea of tying it to the fishing pole, and well, you can see how it works, as well as looks! He also just convinced Thomas to give it a try today for the first time.
