Milestone for Carson

You never have to learn to ride a bike twice. We tried taking Carson's training wheels off a few months ago, and he just wasn't ready to try it. But a few weeks ago he kept asking me to take them off. I hesitated for a few days because I thought I would be putting them right back on. Then he came running in the house one day and said "Mom, I can ride a two-wheeler!" One of Carson's friends had been busy hunting down tools in our garage to take those training wheels off. I was surprised they did it all by themselves! Anyhow, after a few wobbly moments, he went sailing down the street with no problem. A few minutes later he had mastered turning. What a milestone he achieved all by himself! He was so proud. Then we changed his talent in the Primary Talent Show at the last minute so he could show the whole ward. Oh, and he is starting Kindergarten on Sept 4th (sniff, sniff). When you are little life is so full of 'firsts'.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
