Trike a Thon
Along with many firsts Will has encountered at school this year, he participated in his first trike a thon in an effort to raise money for St. Jude. The fun started a few days before the race when he had to make a decision about which of his many riding toys he was going to bring. He for some reason wanted to bring his little tricycle, but thankfully took Ben's and my advice and took his big boy bike. The day of the race came and true to form, Will was a little hesitant to ride with all of the parents watching. However, as the trike a thon rolled along, he got the hang of it and started riding more quickly even making a few strategic passes which made his daddy proud :) Once the ride was over he enjoyed a delicious snack of cheez its and water. All in all it was a successful event. Thanks to both sets of grandparents for sponsoring Will in the race!
Obviously a little apprehensive at the beginning of the ride.
