there's a difference between being proud of your kid, and completely amazed. kids give you plenty of opportunities to feel proud. they learn to walk, talk, read "sam sat on the cat", ride their bike, etc. each of these are notable accomplishments, and you will be proud (and you should be!). but, big picture, you're not exactly surprised. clearly, it would be a great deal more surprising if they did not cross these milestones.

and then, every once in awhile, they do something that truly, well, amazes you.

today was one of those days.

after maybe 8 sessions on her bike, 7 riding around a flat astro-turf field, and 1 riding around a flat paved school-yard, ava rode her bike... 1/2 mile up the sidewalk to the park, 3 miles around the park loop road including one quite sizeable uphill and 1/2 mile back down the sidewalk home.

umm... what just happened?

see below for random 20 second snippet of her journey.
