Great Day for Bikes

Hannah is the proud owner of a new bike. She has grown several inches in the past year and was ready for a bike that matched her long legs. Just to make sure it worked before going for a ride with her sister she checked it out by riding to Grandma and Grandpa’s house.

My first bike was a used one I got around the third grade. We lived on a gravel road and it was not until the summer I was going into either third or fourth grade that I had a bike. It was a green and white bike in very nice condition. The first owner was another Rebecca.

Rhett learned to ride his bike in about an hour. The neighbor boy had a dream where he could ride his bike. He got up in the morning and within an hour he could ride by himself. Rhett saw what was happening, got out his bike and shortly was riding too. Before that the two of them had spent hours on their big wheels and were not interested in riding bikes. They rode round and round in the cul-de-sac all day long.

Cul-de-sac is French for bottom of the bag. I had to look up the spelling of that word. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Hi Rebecca - you have included one of my very favourite quotations on your blog, so I'm hooked straight up! Hannah has got the one thing I've always coverted - gorgeous long legs, she's a very fortunate young lady.
