The weather here is beautiful. Spring, practically summer - highs in the mid-70s. We headed outside after we finished spelling words to play. Abby finally was ready and had the confidence and dedication to learn to ride her bike. We've tried many times and she wanted to give up because it wasn't easy (and it wasn't easy to teach her when Micah and Alexis wanted to play and she wanted to play with them instead of learn to ride her bike) She took off and in no time was riding on her own. Such a proud moment.
Miss Lexie had fun toddling around outside and look at those sweet curls she's starting to get. I love baby curls.
Sadly however about 30 minutes after we went inside, Beau was leaving for the gym and saw several ambulances, a fire truck, police and an EMS command/first responder vehicle. A little boy in Abby's grade, down the block and around the corner had been riding his bike on the side walk (waiting for the ice cream truck) when a 17 year old, unlicensed, speeding, drunk driver reached for his phone he had dropped, drove his truck onto the sidewalk, hit and killed that little boy. Such a sad, sad end to the day.
It scares me enough riding in the street when teaching Abby to ride her bike because of all the cars parked on the street that kids can hide behind but now we have drunk drivers jumping on the curbs. My heart aches for that family.
