Balanced Life

“Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some & think some and draw & paint and sing & dance and play & work every day some.”
--Robert Fulghum

Cutie Face turned

on August 8th
(or, as she likes to say, the Day the Olympics Started)

In keeping with our 4-gift theme
(want, wear, need, read)

we bought her a balance bike
(we placed it in the "need" category as in, she needs to learn how to ride a bike and, hopefully through that accomplishment, gain confidence in herself)

With a big boost from J, she eagerly tried it

when it came time for the actual balance by yourself

 well...she wanted to trust her daddy

 but that kind of faith doesn't come easy, either

 Little Cutie Cakes watched and waited

and then it was her turn!

if you look closely, you can see that Cutie Face was thrilled to allow her little sister have a go on the balance bike:

It was a win-win by the looks of excitement on both sisters faces

and i think J might have enjoyed himself, too
