a collection of words about God and life and art and baseball and football and hope and my family and my ministry and music and the immense joy in each moment of all of it. it's a record of being human. welcome.

learning to ride without the training wheels
last night we took the boys out to the church parking lots to ride backs, and we took the training wheels off of jackson's bike for the first time. i figured he'd be a bloody pulp by the time we finished, but he only fell once (although you would have thought that it was the end of the world!), and he did much better than i expected. the video below is a just a composite of 8 or 9 pictures, kind of like one of those old "flip books" that makes something look animated. anyway, you could get a sense that he started off pretty good, at least in a straight line. now we have to work on turns. one step at a time!
