two riding boys

It’s official, Noah and Ezra are bike riding machines! They have been on the scoot bikes (no pedals and limitedĀ steeringĀ  since 2, and they did get pedal bikes about a year ago, but were still a little too short to reach the ground well.

They were on training wheels for a few months, mainly because getting started was tough. Ezra usually would just ask for a push so he could skip the self start. It clicked last week, and Noah was quick to follow. Now they ride for at least an hour a day, sometimes two.

Watch out world, We are riding every where and going mountain biking with daddy soon.

Hail Storm

We had a huge hail storm at the beginning of March. Pretty rare for us so it was a lot of fun. We also got a ton of rain with it and lost power for hours! Thunder shook the house then rain started pouring! We pretty much never have weather so the boys loved it.

International Women’s Day – March 8

Women of all ages make up one of the most vulnerable populations in the world. They face violence, discrimination, lack of basic rights, lack of education and more. -FH

Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and we have signed up for the Walk to Empower Women. It is organized by Food for the Hungry and is this Sunday in Phoenix.

If you are in the Phoenix area and wish to join us we are team “Running with Scissors” (Meg I just had to borrow your blog title).

If you wish to support any of us, here’s our links:

This was totally a last minute sign-up and we would thought it would be a fun family activity. Any monetary support is just icing on the cake. Thanks!

Ezra is officially a bike rider!

Ezra has been able to pedal for a while, but he couldn’t get started on his own. He finally figured it out yesterday and is one HAPPY boy!

He quickly graduated to wanting to learn to jump things.
