Jordan’s Grandma, Poppy and Daddy Jr. are here to help us build a new deck in the backyard!! It’s very exciting. Plus, the girl has shown a LOT of interest in riding a bike. Not just a tricycle, but a bike. And since she really has shown that interest, her grandparents pitched in and got her a new bike with training wheels. We would have just handed her the bike her brother used, but she’s too tiny!
So she got a Dora bike! She’s just a touch too small for the 12 inch bike – but that hasn’t stopped her from trying! She even told me she wanted to ride her bike to our favorite ice cream shop – which is NOT an easy ride (nor have I ever tried to do it with the kids). Anyway, I am thrilled she’s excited to become a bike rider – even if we live around a bunch of hills.
Another wonderful moment today (and there were many… to many to write) was watching her play with our family in the backyard. We don’t even have the complete deck up (and I’ll post a picture of the finished product when it’s done)… But Jordan danced on that deck and ran and played. She and Cameron spent more time in the backyard than we have all spring. Just think what it’ll be like once we have a full deck to enjoy the fun.
So… Here’s an example of Jordan’s joy… The deck is big and we’ll have a bunch of performance space for the kids to dance, sing and be silly.
