Ethan gets a big boy BIKE!!
Before Ethan could get his bike, he had to memorize Psalm 100.
Here we go!!!

Ok, so he's a little excited about the bike.
As you can see, he even EATS in anticipation!

These may seem trifle, but they are MAJOR injuries to Ethan!
This first little "nick" on his thumb looks little, but it bled like he cut off his finger!! When Ethan saw the blood pouring from his hand, he was sure he was done for!

It was a rainy day and Ethan just could not keep off that bike, so he rode circles around the ping-pong table. Apparently, he ran right into it. Neither Ben nor I saw it, but from Ethan's reenactment, we figured that's what happened. Ben and I had to conceal our chuckles as we brushed off the bunches of eye lashes from Ethan's cheek and shirt.

The first of many scratches! A basic wipe-out!

Ethan has surprised us! He keeps at it despite the wounds he has incurred! It will be a fun summer once he figures out that HE is the one driving!! Practice, practice, and patience as it took about 35 minutes to make it around the block today!!
We may have to pick up some pads...and a face mask! Hee Hee!!

Thanks for the chuckle . . . again! The Smith'sonian never disappoints for that! What a big boy and what a great idea for him to complete Psalm 100! What a super teacher you are! =)
