Exactly one year ago today was the first day of bike camp for Elijah. Two days later he rode a 2 wheel bike for the first time in his life. He has made cautious progress over the past year, but I often wondered what would happen when he got his first skinned knee. That day is today. His bike tire slid on the dirt and Elijah went down hard. He picked up his bike and threw it and cursed nature, but was back on the bike again within a minute.
