My Buddy

Cheney has one week until he starts 1st grade. 1st grade??!! Shouldn't he still be in preschool? Where did my little boy go? Lately, he has been showing more & more independence. On Saturday, he had a birthday party to go to. It was Katie's party & this summer they moved to a house right at the entrance to our neighborhood. Cheney decided that he would go to the party by himself on his bike. I was not needed nor did he want me there. In the discussion about how Mommy really needed to go to the party with him, he stated, "Mom, if you just want some cake, I will bring it to you!" I was cracking up!! Needless to say, he rode his bike with his Daddy behind him....enough behind him that he didn't know he was there. When he started to walk his bike up the hill (It is steep, you know!) his Daddy passed him. He said, "I told you not to come!" Daddy just waved & said "I am going on a bike ride...Bye." I did show up a while later...he was not too happy to see me...but I was there anyway.


After the party, we headed over to the river to ski. Cheney got up on the 1st try & skied the farthest ever. This time out, people were noticing him...he looks so tiny. He was proud & was smiling at them...when the girls on the floats yelled, he just waved. OMG!! He is so much like his father...flirty!! If you watch the video, he lets go with one hand about halfway through. He was been working on this for a while!! We tried to turn today...but it didn't work out. Oh well, turning is hard!!

Cheney is spending a few days at the coast with Granny 'Nette-without his Mommy or sister. He is so excited!! I know that I will miss him though...I can't wait for my buddy to return. This year will such an adventure...
