Claudia: You are winding down with kindergarten... just a few more days. You turned in your last homework assignment entitled "my plans for the summer." So far your list includes: (1) going to Chuck E Cheese (we've avoided it this far, so I guess we are due); (2) swim at the beach; (3) have a slumber party; and (4) bake a cake. I think we will do all this and some more. You are trying to help me teach Patrick how to ride his balance bike. Thank you for that... it has not been easy, has it? ;) Patrick: With the weather being so rainy, we go outside every chance we get. You ride your scooter so well, but you are refusing to ride on your balance bike. You just want to "walk it," which means you walk beside it and pull it everywhere you go. Claudia and I are trying to figure out a way to get you on the bike so you can have some real fun!
