We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

I can do it! "Ich kann das!"

We're getting used to southern California seasons: sunny and rainy. Since the parks are too wet and we're still on the mend from colds, we kept the adventuring close this week. We DEFinitely need to get outside everyday, lest too much pent up energy cause an explosion of "LOST" proportions. The handlebars had to be raised and the tires pumped, but the small bike is still working okay for our 42 pound, 43", 3yr old sweetpea.

So we grabbed the $6 SPCA bike and went outside to tackle some hills, climb some hills between shrubs, and otherwise play on someone's perfectly manicured apartment complex grounds adjacent to a hoity toity golf course. Now you see where we live.

Lately Lukas has been really into video making, asking me to film him yet again, then begging to see a video of himself. Here he drove pell-mell down a few little hills. Some pictures are reminiscent of the "Chutes and Ladders Era" to which we give tribute in the video as well. In the most requested video that you will see here, first Lukas welcomes us to the racing museum, then takes off, showing us his downhill cruise, then during the return interview wants to tell us thanks for coming when he suddenly disappears from the camera as he topples over, ending the video by repeating the family mantra: I can do it. In German, of course.

I promise you this brought more laughing tears than crying. From him and from us:
