Yana trying to teach Reni how to ride and Logan learning by himself. Neither could ride bikes. Logan watched, got a little help, and took off. He, Max and Nik were my only kids to ever do that. All the rest took some time to learn. Now, Logan and Nik and Alex like to ride.
Got to get used to squinting in that Carolina sun. Reni looks so big here for some reason. Really, she's not that big at all.
Alex, really enjoying some riding.
URGHH!!! One of my two camera hogs. LOL. Now, if I could just get him to get rid of that fake smile. I admit though, I do love taking his picture.
Reni, Yana and Alyona. If you're wondering why Reni looks scared, the dog is laying near her. Digby, the one w/ hardly any teeth on the bottom. The one who never jumps up or does anything. Seriously, he lays there and just lives to be petted. Thankfully, this petrified look has gone away as of late.
I will also explain more of Alex. It is very, very difficult for a child w/ his extreme past to have us gone for extended periods of time. However, it is also vital we leave as well so that he is assured we are coming back. Took Alex about 2 days to come back to his old self. He has expressed over and over again how happy he is that his brother is finally home. Soccer buddy.
