Third STR

We remembered the bigger bike!  Jack can't really start or stop since his legs are a little short.

But he did great and knew it!

Love this silly boy.

Second STR

So Mama might have forgotten to load up the big bike for the race today.  Oops!
Jack still did great riding and racing with a great big group of kids.

So proud of this boy!

The house has been a disaster for weeks as we are in the process of redoing our carpet and hardwoods.  While we're moving and reorganizing, Jack is still finding ways to have fun.

Jump buddy, jump!

20 Inch Bike on the Trails

At the last short track race, Jack really wanted to ride his big bike.  So today, we took it out to the trails for a trial run.
He did great, tearing up the trails and even riding the entire race course.

We'll get to see him in action on the new bike next week!

Winter Riding

Despite my having numb fingers, Jack would not let us do the short loop today.
The kids had to have been freezing, but was still smiling.

Jack was loving the little bridges.

And laughing at the slipping and sliding.

He was tearing up the berms and made us do them twice.

He is one happy kid on a bike.

First Winter Short Track Race

It's race time again and Jack is ready.  Despite the cool temps and the muddy trails, Jack had to race today.  He did great, only getting beat by three 8 year old kids.
And smiling the entire time.

Somehow he managed to get two medals.

And a little mud.
Go Jackie, go!
It's become more fun watching Jack than racing myself.  Is this motherhood?

Birthday Sushi

How lucky are we that Jack's favorite food is our favorite food!
We've trained him well.

I'm really too old to have a 5 year old!

Today I am 41, next month Jack will be 5.5.  Thanks goodness he keeps me young.
Tilley and Jack really outdid themselves with the cake this year.  Thanks AJ for the awesome cake pan!

Thanks guys for making me one happy Mama!
