Yes it is election day, but I cast my vote over a week ago. No I will not tell you who I voted for but I will say it was not the "lesser of two evils" like I keep hearing people say, I voted for who I believe in and agreed with. Will who I voted for win? More than likely not. Do most of you know that there are more than 2 people running for president? maybe not. But I made my voice heard and that is all that matters. If you did not vote please don't tell me and please for the next four years do not one time complain about the president and how he is running this country. If you vote and your guy doesn't win oh well at least you voted!
But that is neither here nor there I have something WAY more important to talk about. Something that is MAJOR has happened today! Something that we were beginning to believe would Never happen, something that we have tried to make happen on more than one occasion, but with no luck.
What you say could be more important than electing a New president of the United States of America? Well my boy riding his bike for the first time with NO I repeat NO training wheels!
here's daddy taking the wheels off
I mean this is such a big deal, he was serious about not even wanting to try. Well there was this one time, but it got off to a rocky start when he hit his leg on the pedal and caused an "injury" and it was pretty much over from the start. Then the bike sat because Shane would not put the training wheels back on forever, but we gave in and they went back on, but alot higher so still he was not happy and barely rode it.
Well today it is another gorgeous day so I thought why not give it a try, I took him out to the road and he was riding so well the training wheels weren't even touching. I convinced him to let daddy take them off, and he was like a pro! He never fell over, he never crashed, nothing he just took off and started riding. We were jumping up and down with excitement.
He was also so proud of himself. He is really turning into a big kid before our eyes. I could almost cry.
