Benefits of learning

Mom is still working on having Alice learn how to ride a bike. There was a burst of interest earlier this summer but after some injuries (Alice doesn’t like to wear shoes and so scrapes her foot badly basically every time). Since then Alice has been content with the tag-along (which is sufficiently geared that Alice can help bike — Mom says that on one recent trip Alice was doing most of the work for a while).

However, Mom is nothing if not devious. She let the boyen go off to the local grocery store on their bikes to get some slushies. Alice was not permitted because Mom and I had to work and she couldn’t ride a bike. She was very upset about it, almost enough to try the bike again. But Mom is also patient. Hopefully a seed has been planted.
