I love watching my kids climb, run, and play (in the appropriate venue). It’s part of the continual labor of fueling the child and then giving the child the opportunity to safely burn the fuel.
It’s a little mind-blowing that Thom and VInnie are now also able to burn their fuel so productively. Over six miles in a day is a lot for those little legs.
I told them that they could get ice cream each time they chose to ride bikes. Unsurprisingly, they have proclaimed they’ll ride their bikes everyday. Such proclamations are easily made on a sunny afternoon with an ice cream cone in hand.
