HOORAY!! Another list

Not only is it another list but it is actually a TANGIBLE- you can see where you ARE on the list- list. For me that is a NICE little list. The pretend list is kinda a cheap way of saying " Good luck with that."

So what is this list? Tyler is OFFICIALLY on the BIKE LIST at Shriners! He had specific things he had to reach in order to get on the list and our Therapist is kind of a stickler on it. He waited until Ty could DO them not just almost do them. While I understand I was still a little ticked.

Since the weather didn't actually and fully suck for a few days we were able to go out and play on his bike. When he has motivation and other kids, pedaling alone for 5 times is a BREEZE. So when we were in Therapy he got mad and was told to go find mom. He was TICKED but it did the trick and off he went.

The therapist asked me what color of a bike to order and I said it was Tyler's bike ask him. So he did. Ty replied " I want a green one please" and we asked a few times to make sure he was sure and he was SURE.

So Ty will be the proud owner of his VERY OWN bright green, RIFTON bike. It should work for several more years for him and he can do all he needs and wants to do on it.

Gracie got her bike last summer and she loves it. I know Tyler will love his too! Good color choice!

Yay! I'm so glad for you. I can't wait to see a picture of him riding HIS bike! This is the only kind of bike my daughter can pedal, but unfortunately we don't have a shriner's hospital with a list. We just have to use it during therapy and keep working on our insurance company (which I know you are familiar with).
