Growing Up!

Yes, we are still alive and well in Singapore.  We are so sorry that we have not been updating you lately.  Here is the latest news:

IMG_2247Aaron turns four years old on Saturday, the 6th of February.  Our present to him is a brand new bicycle.  Last Saturday we took him out to eat lunch at a nearby hawker center.  After lunch, Betsy told him about our plan to go to the bike shop and find a bike just for him.  She wished she had the camera.  His face lit up from his eyes to his jaw-dropping surprise.  He was so excited.  The shop owner was very helpful and chose just the right size and style for Aaron.  Daddy helped him ride it home, mostly Daddy pushing and Aaron ringing the bell.

Sunday morning Aaron promptly asked to ride his new bike to church.  We told him that was too far, but later we would ride around on the first floor of our building, called a void deck.  After his nap today, he said, “Mommy, can we go down to the void deck with my new bicycle and practice?”  So we did.  Mommy didn’t realize just how difficult it is to pedal a bike.  He’ll get it!IMG_2253
