Finally, Cassidy has no training wheels.
This seems like such a huge milestone. Aidan has been ripping around with no training wheels since he was 4. We worked with Cassidy last summer but she was just not confident enough. The other night, Steve and I went out to help her try and we became beyond frustrated with the whole situation and I didn't think she was ready. To my amazment, a minute later it just seemed to click and she was off.
Here are the kids biking in a nearby parking lot. Granny was here to join us (she is pushing Liam on his bike in the back of this photo.) The kids had Grandparents day at school and were so excited she came out for the celebration.
Cassidy also lost her first tooth yesterday. She lost it at school, we don't know where or how. She wrote a note to the tooth fairy last night since she had no tooth to put under her pillow.
As for some disapointing news, I think I will have to withdraw from the manitoba marathon this year. Nope, I am not injured. If anything I think I could crush my last years time. I have a wedding lined up for the day before, out of town and we could make it home if we drived through the night, but I have to be up by 5am the next morning so I would be going on an hour or two of sleep........I am trying to rack my brain, looking for a way to do both but I just don't think it is feasible this year. What a bummer! Steve suggested I go run a 'mock' marathon and buy myself a trophy with the entry fee money! I am not totally commited to the fact of giving it up this year, so we will see.
As for kitty, she is still kicking. She went last week for her first kitty check up and got her shots. We also trimmed her nails and after a good discussion with the vet, I have decided not to declaw but trim her nails regularly.
