My son will officially be a first grader this week. He grew so big over the Summer.
The other day we had one of those priceless dinner table conversations, a moment absolutely requiring archival here (the short version)…
me: Yum, what’s in this?
son: It’s stuff from the future, dad.
mom: I think someone’s been playing too much Wii.
son: Dad, it’s all stuff from the future. Good, isn’t it?
mom: I’ll bet you and dad unlocked some new worlds today on Wii Star Wars.
son: Yeah, I was daddy’s master, but he died alot. Can I be excused please so dad and I can go biking?
This Summer has gone so fast. I hate to see it go, and see him off to meet the teacher. I’ll never forget the confidence he gained from taking off his training wheels this Spring.
So many great biking adventures we took from then on… to the tree fort, the swings at the local park, Hy-Vee for a candy bar, and so forth. It’s been a wonderful Summer biking with him, my favorite cycling partner.
