The adventures of a five year old and his bicyskil..

I have to admit that I was ever so slightly worried that my son (at age five) couldn’t ride a bicycle yet.  I was fully aware of the fact that this fears stemmed from the fact that I only learnt to ride a bicycle at tender old age of 12 and that Logan is nothing like his mom.   He is pure adventure junkie.  (Give us strength for when he is older)

About 3 weeks ago when WD came to visit with his bicycle, the pair of them decided to ride down the hill.  I must admit that my nerves were tested a bit – apart from the obvious fact that Logan didn’t know how to ride a bike or use brakes, his brakes were really tight which made it completely impossible for him to use.  Thankfully with a pair of crocs on his feet (RIP dear crocs), he manage to stop quite well!

By the Tuesday after school he was ready to try and place his feet on the peddles and give riding a proper go.  With everything inside of me, I was rooting for him to succeed and when he finally manage to place his feet on the peddle my heart swelled with pride.  His face was absolutely priceless and victory was sweet!

Ever since that moment, my son and his bicyskil (as he would pronounce it) has been inseparable!  Let the adventures begin!

It is the little things that brings happiness all around!

Yesterday was a happy day for me, not because of this or that, but because we did the little things that brings happiness all around:

Early morning start at the gym saw us having our first swim for the season.  (yes I know swimming at the gym, doesn’t classify 100%)  It was amazingly enjoyable, extremely refreshing and the bonus was listening to Logan giggling all the way!

After our swim Kobus went to work for a bit *sad face*.  Logan watched a DVD and I cuddled up reading my book.

The afternoon we did homey things, we loaded our three dogs and Logan’s bicycle on the back of the bakkie.  Logan and Kobus sat at the back of the bakkie while I drove us to the Rietondale Park.  Logan rode his bicycle while Kobus and I followed with the three over-excited dogs.   After we walked all around the park Logan played on the jungle gyms and Kobus and I sat on the grass enjoying the moment.

The evening we went to church, something we should try to do more often, it really makes you realize just how blessed we are!

Tell me all the happy things you did the weekend!
