    First Commute!

    Today was my son's first commute to his preschool - all of one block but he was quite excited about it ..
    Ready to go ..

    Are you keeping up?

    Almost there, and he knows it!


    I managed to get my finger in the lens in two of three photos - not a good photography session, but hoping there are many more such opportunities

    He's riding on the sidewalk! Oh well.

    Did you ride, too, or walk along?

    Walked along. And I guess you're just being humorous, but just in case you aren't - riding on the sidewalk is legal under 12 in California.

    I bet he'll be off those training wheels by the end of the month. Well done!

    He's adorable. He's loving life. I think that guy was joking about the car ride.His sig and the little smiley face give me that impression.There is a section in my commute that I ride the sidewalks when raining.One time a cop told me only children can ride there and I told her I was in my second childhood(I'm 49) She laughed and let me go.
