You Won't Believe This!



Libby, my dear little sensitive girl. The one who doesn't like loud noises, who wants to know what everyone and everything smells like, is riding her bike! What's even more unbelievable is the fact that she did it without the use of training wheels. That's right, we pulled the bike out of the rafters and it laid in the garage for a few weeks waiting for training wheels. Sweet Lib couldn't stand the wait and she had her dad help her, run along side of her, and yes... she took off and hasn't looked back.

This is why the truck isn't done yet... Instead of chasing down the electrical system Jake's been chasing down Libby...
Actually, the new transmission arrived and a lengthy line of rusted out holes beneath the gutter (under the windshield) was welded and repaired. Jake and his friend have successfully installed the new fuse box. Things are rip-roaring in the garage again and somebody is having dreams about driving the thing. We are excited and it looks like the short trip to our local Chipotle is about to become much shorter!

Wow, go Libby! I can't believe she never even needed the training wheels. These Reynolds children are amazing!

I got to witness how this little girl rides, She looks like she is going on a mission! Grandpa get out of my way. Jake was the same way! Our little Libby is growing up too quick, she is one busy little gal. This sounds simple but I enjoy just watching her stay busy.
Just the other day she allowed me to make mud pies with her in the dirt, she already knows all the ingredients for all of christie wonderful pies as libby corrected grandpa because I forgot the sugar.
