a day worth remembering

Saturday, June 06, 2015

Today we went to the park for the first time this year! It was super fun, and surprisingly -quite warm. :) It was a simply beautiful day. My sisters and I went through the woods and down the footpath to the river. It was quite large but super warm! The water was so peaceful and shallow. It was lovely.

Summer reading started today! Here we come! I asked the librarian, and she said I count count the time I edit my novella as time of reading. (Yes, I asked that...haha) It will be super awesome this summer because I plan on focusing on editing a lot. :)

This evening I went outside to water my flowers by the mailbox. (Tomorrow I'll be planting some day-lilies that I got today!) and my three-year-old sister tagged along. She then saw her new bike that she had just gotten the other day..and I helped her get on. About a half an hour later she started pedaling. Yes, people. Pedaling. Sure, I had to told onto her, but I wasn't pushing! Goodness, it took me years to get that down. It took her thirty minutes. She's three, people! She needs to work on the steering and her fear of me letting go of her, but she got the pedaling down! Such an amazing little sis. ;)


How old were you when you started riding your bike (with training wheels)?
Are you entering summer reading?

  1. I don't remember when I rode with training wheels, but I remember it took me two years to learn without them and my brother ten minutes. I'm totally entering summer reading! Kate Dicamillo (have you heard of her?) is coming to my library and I'm super excited; I've read all of her books, and I'm planning on rereading them!

    xoxo Morning

    I'd love to see some photos of your little sister! How many of you are there in your family? You don't really show us many photos/tell us much about them!

    3. It starts on the first of July. It will go for a month. :) I don't think I will be doing it, since I am editing my novella...I might use it just for editing my novella. We'll see. :) You have to be 13+ to enter but other than that, it's just a place to keep your goal and meet other writers. :)

    1. yes!! She was so happy, the first thing she said was "Mommy will be proud, right?!" ;)

      oh, wow! With our library for every 15 minutes we read we can check a box. For every hour we get a slip to drop in a box for prizes. :D It's super fun!

      Thanks! Your bookmarks are very beautiful! For summer reading, I've just been using an index card so I can write how many minutes I read on there. ;) Thanks!

  7. I remember riding my bike without four wheels at our friend's house. They were about my age so they taught me how to do it! I am going to do a summer reading contest too. It starts this Friday. I'm excited to read!
