The kiddos finally got to try out their new saddles. Meganne and Braden are starting to learn and Johnathan pretty much has it down since he rode most of the trails by himself last summer and fall. Hopefully we'll have the other two riding soon. I'm not pushing Braden and Meganne I have to remind them all the time that their brother didn't start riding by himself until last summer. After years of wanting them to be able to ride now I'm nervous that they might actually be old enough to do it. Mom-worry sets in but I have to let them go right? I have to let them learn. No one told me what a struggle being a mom would be. I want them to fly but on the other hand I'm afraid to let them try. I want them to be confident but I'm afraid they'll get hurt during the learning process. UGH! Mom-worry...it's a disease I tell ya. I'll let the photos pretty much speak for themselves.
Sticking out his tongue must help his riding skills. LOL!
I'm only allowed to post this photo of Derek. This is a rare sight. Even more rare is the photo of him in the saddle which I'm not allowed to post. He's changed his horsepower in for a car these days.
This one thinks he's a pro now and not too crazy about the pink saddle. I seriously think he's lives in these pants. But he's rough on cloths and that is an understatement. I had no idea that Carhart made pants like this for kids but they are definitely durable and worth every penny. I'm bummed he's growing out of them so fast but at least there are no holes in the knees and I'll just save them for his brother.
