Another Reminder

My mom reminded me about other things I like about my family. And I'm the first (well, maybe the second) to admit when I'm wrong. There are three other things I like about my family:

  • We are a biking family. Once Ollie could ride without training wheels and on something a bit bigger than a clown bike, I've been pushing him. Probably too much, but he's definitely risen to the occasion. For example: On Mothers Day before church (we have 12:30 church), the whole family biked six miles. I don't know if this is a lot for a five-year-old boy, but it seems like a lot to me. And it makes me happy.
  • We are a hiking family. I think my posts about the Smokies showed this. But the love continues! They even asked if we could hike the Billy Goat trail on Sunday. I declined only because I was afraid our recent rain storms closed the trail, as rain has wont to do.
  • We are an early family. Yes, sometimes (a lot of times) I complain about this, but I think there are more upsides than down. Plus, on Sunday, I told the boys that they are to stay in their rooms until 7 a.m. and guess what?! I didn't even hear them once. So yes, I slept until 7. It was a Mothers Day miracle. But had we slept until much later, we couldn't have done the ride, so I guess I have to be happy about it.
