Amanda's Accomplishment

While we were camping, Amanda learned to ride a 2-wheeler! It was quite funny, actually. We hadn't brought bikes for Allison and Amanda, since they couldn't ride them anyway. One day, Zachary got off his bike to do something else and told Amanda "Here, you ride my bike now". She promptly got on his bike and took off! I don't think she even realized what she had done until later.
She was so proud of herself, we knew we'd have to get her a bike when we got home. I was prepared to check out Kijiji, etc. on Monday, after the trailer was unpacked and laundry was done.
Sunday night, our next-door-neighbour knocked on our door to ask if any of our kids needed a bike. He had one from his son (who is Tim's age) that was hardly used. So, Amanda got a new bike with hardly any effort on our part! I just had to get her a new helmet...

TA-DA! It's a nice size, should fit her for a couple of years anyway.
