We Have Bikes!

I’m not sure what’s going on with Elijah in this picture. Maybe he’s sad because he doesn’t know how to ride a bike yet.

It was a sad day last winter when we gave away our bikes before moving to Kenya.  Try as we might, we couldn’t fit even the smallest one in a suitcase.  Now, after 10 months, I’m pleased to announce that the kids have wheels again!  Not everyone has a bike, but we have a big one and a small one, plus one for dad, so riders of every size can take a turn.  Our neighborhood’s terribly bumpy dirt roads are actually great for biking because they deter most cars completely, and the few cars that do drive on them are forced to go slowly.
