Okay you guys! Rock climbing at REI was a hit. We’ve got some great photos. Check them out here. 2 breakfast on the bridges in one week, yikes! The sugar in those doughnuts….
The bike bus movie viewing was fun this evening and almost everyone was there, including drivers, cameramen and child actors. We’ll see if it makes it to the Filmed By Bike cut.
Let’s review with the kids again some safety. I was able to ride as a 3rd adult in the midsection of the bus this week and noticed some things:
1st Laziness. The kids are just following through the stops without looking for their own safety. They HAVE to be their own vehicle in this regard.
2nd Dangly things. Backpack straps, shoelaces, etc. Potential pavement burn, not to mention if getting caught while in some of our traffic cross points.
3rd Chattiness. It’s great that the kids feel they can chat and we do it too, BUT the sweep adult has to be aware of car backs and what the kids are up to throughout the ride. They are the only adult eye that can see everything. If we can chat we need to be able to cut it with vocal riding commands.
That being said, all is well and we have now 2 of our kids doing lead in the afternoon. Awesome. Let’s remind them that the bus goes no faster than the slowest rider. (Sometimes that’s me.) At this point, let’s not have them lead in the mornings at the Flint & Broadway exchange.
The lead schedule is as follows:
- Mon- A.M. Tracy, P.M. Tracy
- Tues – A.M. Scott, P.M. Brie 4:15
- Wed – A.M. Tracy, P.M. Angela
- Thurs – A.M. Dallas, P.M. Clay
- Fri – NO SCHOOL
See you on the bus!
