We rode bikes. Together. On the bike path. Yes, we've done it before, but Eliza decided that this was the week to put her pedals back on and to ride without training wheels. RIGHT ON!

Ani: My legs never fail me! They never fail!!!
It felt so good to see Eliza confident and happy on her bike. It's been a long time coming. These were some deeply content moments for all of us.
We also got around to a project I've been wanting to try for a while and which I'm seeing crop up all over the internet: hula hoop weaving. Ani is in a weaving stage that I remember Eliza going through. The bannisters, the backs of our chairs...nothing is out of bounds for the weaving.
We had planned on using t-shirts for this project, but scored a huge bag of tie-dyed strips of cloth at the thrift store just last week.
Toast and "sprouts"...
More weaving during piano practice...
The latest Ask magazine is about electricity, so of course out came the snap-circuits...
And what weekend would be complete without some Swan Lake?
Well, then. I think we did pretty well.
