flight

He couldn't be coaxed or bribed into doing it any sooner. Like Lexi before him, he was afraid of falling.

And I can appreciate that.

But today he took off like it was nothing. Just like I knew he could.

Here's to courage. I know I could use a little more in my life.

(Way to go, Zack!)

(Tomorrow we will be flying to Bermuda. I am excited and nervous about the plane ride - I've had a cluster headache in flight before and it wasn't pretty. Say a little a prayer for me, won't you please? And I will be around your way again, sometime next weekend. ox)

I will say a little prayer for you. Congratulations to Zach. That is a BIG deal! Have a fabulous holiday in Bermuda!

Zack man, YOU ROCK! Well done.

[Don't we kind of hate how our kids do stuff without any of our help or advice or encouragement sometimes?]

Praying for your flight...Just keep chanting "Bermuda Bermuda Bermuda." Maybe? I'm not really a doctor...

Well, Aunt Lori did make a bet and the winner would get a prize - who would ride first, Zack or Caden? Zack is waiting for that prize and I will deliver this week. Going shopping today...

Good job Z...we are so happy!

Give Zack a high five from me (when he is off the bike of course)

Zack is a rock star! My daughter, Carlie, just got over her fear and tackled two wheels THIS summer... and she is NINE. Can you say late bloomer? heehee

Have a wonderful trip. I am sending non-headache vibes your way.
