The end of September, our boys rode in the annual Dead Boring Bike Hike (with our homeschool group). That morning before we took off, Mr. Inventor offered to pull the smallest trailer he had built, with Mr. Imagination in it. The little fellow was THRILLED to get to go on the bike hike for the first time! Here they are ready to go!
The annual group photo. So hard to get everyone together!
They’re off! As usual, the mothers admonished the boys that it’s not a race. As usual, it was a race as soon as they were out the driveway!
I drove behind Mr. Inventor and Mr. Imagination for a few minutes, till we got through the biggest hills and I let Mr. Sweetie out to ride on the flatter land. Seth, who had an injured foot, and Little Miss rode in the van with me. I put Little Miss in the front passenger seat, and she was excited to get to see out the window! I thought I had a picture of her delighted face there, but apparently it got deleted. Mr. Inventor won the race two or three times, other years, but this year, because he was pulling his brother, he came in sixth. He figured it was about time to let someone else win the race-that-is-not-a-race!
