It's been a fun summer so far! Hard to believe we are already half-way through August! Only a few weeks until Emily starts Kindergarten. Crazy! Crazy! Crazy!
We decided to teach Em how to ride a two wheeler without training wheels. She picked it up really quick!
|First time on the bike after taking the training wheels off|
Daddy helped the first day but then decided his patience wasn't designed to teach a stubborn five year old how to ride a bike, so Mommy took over :) I practiced about 4 evenings with her over a 2 week period. She was doing great but still had some troubles with turning. But then she was off to Aunt Kalli & Uncle Mark's for 4 days so we didn't practice. She came home and apparently her 2 cousins (Reese and AJ) decided to finish up where I left off! She came home and was a rockstar 2 wheel rider! Here is video of her:
We are riding on the road several times a week already. She is doing awesome and we are so proud of her.

We went up north in early August and brought Em's cousin, Mikaiya with us. It was a real treat. Mikaiya was very well-behaved and Em loved having a "sister". It was lots of fun.
|We rented a jet ski for a day - the girls did great!|

Last weekend we went to the Waupun truck show for the night show light parade. It was really fun! We went with our neighbors Kathy & Andy, and Kory's trucker friend Nick and his wife Emily.

|Those ear covers are a godsend! THanks Daddy for remembering them. The parade is SOOO loud!|
|All ready for a road ride!|
