Persistence

We are blessed this year with a wonderful teacher for our son, Zack. Which is a good thing, because he will have her for 2nd and 3rd grades. Her big thing is she loves to ride a bike, and so is encouraging the kids to ride too. At the end of 3rd grade, she will be hosting a 10 mile family bike ride, which she expects us all to participate in.


Trouble was, try as he might, Zack was not interested in getting up on two wheels. That is until two weeks ago.


Nathan and I looked on, while he insisted on trying again and again on his own.


That kid fell off his bike about 500 times, but still day after day he kept going back at it.


And voila, we have success on two wheels!


Accomplishment is contentment.
