In other school-related news, we're getting into a homework groove that seems to be working for all of us. Wyatt has only fought me on it one day and I was able to persuade him to finish by offering a chocolate chip for each section he completed. Four chocolate chips later, he was done. Thought I'd catch him in the act yesterday since he was smiling while he did his homework. Dear God, please let school always (or at least usually) make him this happy.
And finally, little miss had to take one more opportunity to show me how big she's getting by riding her bike without training wheels. We've been encouraging her to try for a while, but she's been really comfortable on her strider and trike and fairly uninterested. With a little encouragement from one of our favorite babysitters the other day, she gave it a try. Encouraged by our excitement and her success, she's been willing to practice a bit each day. Yesterday was it. She rode the length of the cul-de-sac, around the loop, and back up with out me holding on. When we went out again last night, she was all over the place. Daddy has promised to paint her hand-me-down bike purple and pink when she learns how to ride, so I think we have to go get some spray paint this weekend.
