When we moved away from Westbank, we were a little worried that we would be more isolated, it was our first time living somewhere where we couldn't 'see' our neighbours. Our kids really enjoyed calling on their friends and playing outside in the front yard with them. We figured it was something we were just going to have to live without.... until this morning when our neighbour, who rides the bus with the girls, showed up with his buddy on these...
dirt bikes! Y. who is 9, has been riding for a while. He knows a surprising amount about dirt bikes, like how to clean the air filter if you are riding somewhere really dusty and when the motor wouldn't start that it was probably 'flooded'. The gear they wear is also pretty impressive, I would say body armour pretty much describes it.
Anyways, the girls were delighted and have been playing outside for the last few hours. It truly is a beautiful day in the neighbourhood. I just had to include this shot of M....she so loves cooking with dirt :)
A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)
