It was not all cod liver oil today

After his homework was completed, the boy finally rode his bike without training wheels. Sunday his training wheels became bent so we took them off. You can see how it happened here. The culprit apologized but we had wanted to take them off anyway so it worked out. He practiced […]

Getting into photography
