Big News!

I am so proud to say.....Mattea has finally mastered the 2 wheeler!!!

A huge shout of congratulations to my little Matty. This has been a huge accomplishment that we have been working towards for quite some time. This past week it finally clicked. She has got it. She no longer needs us to start or stop her. She puts on her helmet and rides.

For anyone who knows Matty, concentration has been a big problem. Her little head wanders and that makes it hard to grasp the concept of balance. In fact, she has run into mailboxes before on her bike with training wheels. Now, this problem is not solved. Just this past Saturday, Matty was cruising along feeling like a big girl - turned to watch some activity in the park - and rode right into our light post in the front lawn sending her flying over her handlebars. Luckily, no major injuries occurred. But, I'm a mommy who believes in learning the hard ways. Too many spills and she'll realize she needs to pay attention.

But nonetheless - we are proud of you sweet pea!

Sweet! She already knows how to run and goes to swim lessons. She'll be doing triathlons in no time.
