my dad aka LRB taking alexander for his first-ever ride on a quad. alexander had a hard time figuring out the controls (my dad let him accelerate and steer), but once he figured it out there was no stopping him. the kid has no fear.
my dad taking E for his first-ever ride on a quad. i had to coax him into it. E is timid. he is the oppositive of alexander in that regard. but once E got on, he had a blast! i felt like a bad mom (coaxing him to do something he was scared to do) but i also don't want him to be afraid to live life. i want him to try new things even if he's scared. if he doesn't do that, how will he ever experience what life has to offer.
and as usual when i blog, the boys are in the tub and now i must go make sure they have washed their grubby little feet and hands. we spent another day working in the back yard. the good news? the first excavation (yes, there is a second excavation still to come) is almost completely done and level. if i never see another shovel, mattock or wheel barrow i will be a happy woman.
