Man Down!!!



I have to brag on my Rhysie for a minute. Although Rhys and I are not at the best point in our lives with respect to communication, I truly love him and his sweet little laugh and quick sense of humor. Corey has been working with him for quite awhile on learning how to ride his bike without training wheels. Pretty scary for a little kid, but also pretty frustrating for the dad helping. Finally, last night, Rhys took off and did great! Tonight, they went out to practice again and Rhys was even more confident and super proud! He wanted everyone to watch him.... until he went man down in the middle of the circle without even attempting to catching himself. Rhys was left with some serious road rash to the forehead, nose and lips, and a pretty sweet headache. Thank goodness for helmets.... how are we all still alive, I never wore a helmet when I was younger? I love you buddy, I am so proud of you and so glad you were able to get over your fear of riding a bike. I love to watch you do new things!!

Jacob was very concerned about Ryhsie last night. He said to himself out loud while lying in bed "I hope Rhysies's head is gonna be ok."

Good Job on the bike...you're awesome!

Poor kid. At least he has some awesome war wounds to show off.

Poor little guy. I'm so impressed that he is riding without training wheels. What a big boy!

What a sweet boy! I can't believe he's already learning with no training wheels! He and Abby are the same age, and we just barely gave her the bike with the training wheels. At least you weren't dumb enough to have the dog pull him...

Poor Rhys he looks so big with his big ouchy. Looking at your blog B now I now know why we never get together because you're having way to much fun this summer. I'll call you and maybe we could get in on some of that action. miss ya:)
