Sunday afternoons



Tyler has been really busy with work and has put in a lot of hours. So after church it was really nice to just relax and have some family time together. I love just having a lazy Sunday. On Saturday  I decided to take Walker's training wheels off his bike. We practiced for awhile, and then he decided he didn't care if ever learned how to ride a bike. Walker gets frustrated really easy. Then it makes me frustrated that he's so frustrated. So I decided to have tyler give it a try w/ him. So once again Ty and Walker went out and practiced riding a big boy bike. He was doing a really good job, but gave up all to quick.I know if he put forth a little effort he would get it in no time. But I've also learned I cant push him and to help him when he's ready. I'm getting to be pretty wise!

I completely understand where you are coming from with Walker. Lexi is the same way and I have to just let her be until it is her idea to do something. We have been trying to teach her that she CAN ride a bike without training wheels, she just needs to practice. I try so hard not to get frustrated with things so that she will get good vibes from Mom and not bad ones.

Peyton was the last one of all his friends to learn how to ride a 2 wheeler but once he was ready, he learned in seriously an hour!!! He'll get it soon!!!!
