Soccer season is almost over (I know, I know! Cue all the cliches, "It just started", "The season went by so fast", "I can't believe the last games of the season are Saturday"."
But anyway, the kids are both deciding what activities they would like to pursue next. Normally, Jadyn would be in dance and Jake would wait until baseball season starts in February BUT, we all know Jadyn has given up at least ballet for now and Jake is not so sure he wants to continue playing baseball.
And even though he just learned how to ride without training wheels at the beginning of the summer, Jake has gotten very into riding his bike and really wanted to try out the BMX track that is near by. Funny side note about BMX, around the age of 8 or so, my brother got really into BMX and yes, I even gave it a whirl for awhile. I was never very good but my brother had a collection of trophies, many that were taller than him. My point is that BMX is a sport that I am actually somewhat familiar with.
Right now, Jake is just going for practice sessions. He is not quite ready to race. He has been using a tester bike and helmet they have at the track but we are very close to committing to buying him his own equipment. I am excited at the prospect of him pursuing this sport and can't wait to see where it takes him.
