The face of frustration

learning to ride

Learning to ride a new bike is hard. We got it for her 3rd birthday, I think she likes it… trying to encourage and teach. Bless her heart though, she was listening to our advice because she hopped right off and told Savannah (on the ‘new to her trike’) to ‘keep her feet on the pedals and push forward and keep her head up.’We are so proud.

I make this trike look good

Teaching Patience… ha ha

the artist

I love to paint- always have. When Pennie became old enough (aka: more than two seconds worth of patience) and showed interest, I was thrilled (also because it’s one skill that my husband does not have, nor the patience). I have learned that it is all about timing. But the wait is totally worth the mess to see her learn new skills every time we get out the paint. 


Savannah is ‘chomping at the bit’ to paint but for now, she creates her 18 month old masterpieces with Crayola.
