Just Had to smile

Jacob came dashing into the studio this afternoon after spending some time at his friend Steven's house with their great invention. They put a gator aid bottle on their bikes between the wheel and the fender and as Jake said, " it sounds like a motorbike! " I just had to smile and remember my own childhood as he rode around on my Dr. Suess sidewalk making his motorbike noises. I then told him how we used to use a football card and a clothespin to make our bikes sound motorized. I think that surprised him. And surprised him even more when it worked. My funny, sweet boy whose hands and feet are bigger than mine! I'm glad we had a break in the rain so they could bike around the neighborhood. Ah... sweet summers of youth! xxoo, Lois
