Today we surprised Kyle with a special bike set up just for him. It has extra large side wheels and a large seat to help with balance, and the gears have been fixed so the wheels don’t turn independently of the pedals. This makes it easier for him to pedal the bicycle.
We had tried putting him on bicycles a few times before, and it was always just a bit more than he could manage, but the moment we put him on this one, he took off like Lance Armstrong. We let him ride around the parking lot at the bike shop for a few minutes, then took him home to get his helmet and let him ride more.
Only a few minutes of riding, and he had already started a bike gang.
For Earth Day, Kyle’s school held a little event where the school kids and their families could come in to play games and meet all the teachers.
Half of the gym floor was covered in styrofoam peanuts for the kids to play in
Ian GOES CRAZY!!!

On the way out to the car we stopped at the playground for a few minutes to let Kyle and Ian burn off whatever energy they still had left after all the excitement at the party.
