Bike adventure

January 17, 2016

Our Sunday bike adventure along the neighbourhood nature paths included stops at Arbor Park to play with friends; The Italian Maid for lunch; and Papi giving us a lesson in skipping stones on the lake. Our legs are a little tired even though I did get a lift from Papi for some of the way – and if you think that’s a balancing act, my my bike was balanced on Mum’s handlebars! ~ by Rafa.

Terrific gym reports

We got our gym reports tonight

We got our gym reports tonight full of ‘terrific’ ticks

Rafa’s report notes said he was “charming and strong!” and the comment on mine says, “You are the funniest kid I have!  I can always count on you to remember that we have to go to the pit!”
