If at first you don’t succeed…

2007 05 16 no training wheels

Here is a long-overdue spread! I have been wanting to scrap these pictures for some time, but the thought of weeding through dozens of photos from this day held me back. I finally got over that, though, and made the plunge. This page took me two nights, only because my computer crashed mid-layout last night. (Not fun, but I like the new version MUCH better than where it was headed last night!) Anyway, these are pics from more than two years ago when my son was learning how to ride his bike without training wheels. He seemed to have dead-on targeting for every mailbox on the street, but he surprised us at how easily and quickly he mastered the sport! It was literally just minutes before he had it figured out. :o)

Journaling: We were surprised by how easily you were able to master riding your bike without training wheels. With just a few shaky starts (on your too-little Harley Davidson bike) behind you, you got brave enough to try the “big-boy” bike, easily collected your balance and took off, sailing down our street without a worry in the world. Your aim was perhaps a little shakier than your balance, though. Nearly every mailbox in sight seemed to be your direct target for those first few rides on your Hot Wheels two-wheeler!

Sources: All patterned paper from Tracy Collins' Welcome Home kit. Scallop journaling blocks are my designs, using Tracy Collins' patterned papers.

  1. Me, too, Michele! And I figured out what the problem was with my computer. I discovered that iPhoto had been copying every photo I tagged (that’s a LOT) into a separate folder. It was also COPYING every photo I ever edited into ANOTHER folder. I had more than 38 GB (more than 1/4 of my hard drive) in DUPLICATE photos I didn’t know were there! Ugh! I am weeding through them slowly. I was able to work on Monday morning, though, after cleaning some of those off. Going to take some time, though! (And I won’t be using iPhoto anymore!)

  2. I’m so glad you were able to finish this layout. I love it! And you were worried that you had too many pictures! I hope your computer issue didn’t cause you too much of a headache for work yesterday morning.
