The school year is coming to an end and I cannot believe how fast the first grade is going to be over. Bobby's freshman year at the University of Great Falls will be over at the end of next week. I am so very proud of him, he has worked so hard and is doing great in school. It will be nice for everyone to have a little break from school and we are planning to have a great summer.
This morning was the most beautiful day of the year so far. Carla just so happened to wake up early, and then decided that she wanted to ride her bike to school. This was significant because since we bought Carla's bike over a year ago, she has been very afraid to ride it, and has declared on several occasions that "That thing is going to kill me!" Her fear stemmed from falling the first time she rode it, and ever since she had been very stubborn about not wanting to learn to ride her bike. This morning's bike ride was all her idea and she did a great job! Bobby, Mario (the dog) and I walked with her and she only needed a little bit of help (her legs are still not really strong). When we arrived at the school she wore her helmet and pads all the way to her classroom. She stood like she was 10 feet tall and strutted like a baller. She was so incredibly proud of herself! It was an epic moment to witness. When she got to her class she said, "I rode my bike all the way here and didn't even fall down!" I'm hoping that her enthusiasm continues.
This Friday is the Vigilante Parade in Helena. Vigilante day is a day that Helena celebrates her heritage. The parade is at high noon and is put on by the high school kids. It was always such a fun day when I was a kid, and I have really missed it since moving form Helena. This year I'm going to take Carla and watch for one of my very best friend's son in the parade.
Next weekend Bobby and I will celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary! I can't believe how time has flown!
