Peninsula State Park, Door County, Wisconsin. She becomes a bike rider.

I love to ride my bike.  I always have.  I learned when I was five and have never stopped riding.  Many words to write about how much I love to ride and where. And many words to write about what has been challenging for my daughter about learning to ride a bike– mostly words about confidence and resistance to being pushed in certain ways.  Not to mention living in the heart of a city where there are few places to just easily hop on and safely try to ride and ride in a wide open environment without much auto, bike or pedestrian traffic.  But I’ll save those words for later.  Or never.  Because she’s a bike rider now.  This vacation sealed the deal.  Two and half miles yesterday and more like three and a half today and it would have been eight or ten had it not clouded over with thunder and lightning.  She takes on the hills with the best of us.  I’m one proud mama.
