The kids are registered for camp and I’m starting to check off my long list of things to purchase for the big day. This year is a little different from last, as my eldest will be going away for a full week instead of the two day sampler she experienced last year.

My daughter is average height for her age, and because of this, my search to find a tricycle or bicycle that would fit her frame was unsuccessful. Her inability to touch the ground on most cycles has frustrated her to no end. I did buy a […] Continue reading →
