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~

16 inch Bike for the 3 yr old self-proclaimed "Profi"

 We found this bike on sale after Christmas, and hid it away, perhaps for Lukas' birthday in April. But seeing him on his little bike, with knees almost hitting the handle bars, Jared reeeeally wanted to put it together and let him ride it sooner. So while the neighbor girl Tynara was at our house making glue and sprinkle letters with Lukas at the table, Jared unboxed the shiny new red bike. Then we all went outside to watch it's maiden voyage. And when we asked Lukas how it was he replied, "Es tut mein Bum weh!" (It hurts my bum!) Since it's taller off the ground, we have to lower the seat all the way for his feet to touch the ground,  but then pedals are up a bit higher, so his little buns are getting an extra workout until he grows a couple more inches. He can go much faster though, and enjoys the thrill of the speed so much that the added gluteus workout doesn't seem to phase him. Thanks little yellow $6 bike! You did a great job for almost a year of riding! We're so proud of Lukas for his willingness to try hard things!!

 And here we were earlier in the day at Shadowridge Park, in the cool lower windy 50s. Yes, we were some of the people being made fun of on the news as those news stations spoke of people "freezing" in LA, and the surrounding areas due to the 'frigid' temperatures. Bwaah ha ha. I know on paper it is truly pathetic, but after being here in warm-land for so long it really shivered me timbers!! I even wore Jared's big jacket and a scarf around my head!
