Which makes us very happy. Playing with friends, happy hour, going to the farmers’ market, strolling along the Pearl Street mall, playing in the fountains, hiking, and now. . . learning how to balance on Ava’s bike without pedals.
After seeing many small children who were able to ride a bike, we asked about the secret- take off the pedals and don’t bother with training wheels. They just push themselves along and eventually they start to balance without even realizing it. It’s so fun to go on walks with Ava now rolling along at my side.
This is exactly the summer I’ve always dreamed of- no yard work, no house projects, no school work, just taking life a little bit slower and enjoying each moment.
