We started our day with bike lessons at the park just up the street from our house. Cory started taking Cannon every morning last week to refine his skills and he made a bunch of progress. Just about 20 minutes a day but consistency is key!
It’s silly to learn the lesson over and over again but really doing a little bit everyday really makes a big difference. I need to remember this with my running. Sometimes I compare where I am now to where I was when I was training for Ironman or ultras and feel like a couple miles doesn’t mean much. But it matters more what you do everyday than what you do once in awhile.
Given all of this Emmy and I decided to join Cannon and Cory to work on her balance bike skills.
I wonder when she will be ready for her pedal bike.
Cannon took a spill at the end of his lesson when he hit a wet patch. He thought it was hilarious, he cracks me up.
I wanted to get some PT done and a couple miles in so the kids joined me in the basement.
Normally they are fine just playing but this morning they worked on their Homer App because we were going to be gone most of the rest of the day. Homer is a kids education game app, we are using it as well as some other activities to make sure that Cannon doesn’t forget his alphabet and phonics before school starts back up. Emmy is just working on her skills so she is ready for pre-k.
Spending time rolling is key to me getting to keep running.
Then it was time for a Target run to grab some things for our trip ( I can’t believe we leave the day after tomorrow). They already have back to school merchandise out, I am not even close to ready. Although I love halloween decor so I am not sad when that starts to trickle into stores in August.
Cannon had a swim lessons, we are pausing lessons for July to see if we can just practice his skills in our own pool.
Emmy hung out with me in the waiting room, she is very supportive of her brother.
We went to my parents house for the afternoon, then the kids played in the back yard while I continued to pack for our trip. I always want to be great at packing but it still takes me awhile to get it all done.
We are getting really excited about our Oregon adventure. Have you been to Oregon? If so what is your favorite place to visit?
