Bikes to school

Since we have now had 2 days without rain, the roads are nice and dry. When I suggested riding bikes to school this morning, there was overwhelming excitement from the kids. The boys zoomed ahead while LP and I took things a little more leisurely.... there were a few "scary" sloping bits where LP deemed it safer to get off the bike and walk. At one stage she fell off her bike and emergency cuddles had to be issued before we continued on to school. Brave girl for getting back on again! The boys got twice as much exercise because they would ride on ahead, then turn around and come back looking for us.... then ride on ahead again. I think they pretty much covered each stretch twice! I rode home afterwards at speed, and felt very good... nothing like an early morning surge of endorphines! I was even able to face the breakfast/morning chaos with a smile :)
