Pay It Forward

My first roommate from college participated in a pay it forward project. It sounded like so much fun and since I've been trying my hand at more homemade things here recently I decided to join in. I was lucky enough to write one of the first comments so sometime in the next year I'll be getting something exciting in the mail.

Would you like to join me in the anticipation? Here are the rules:

I promise to send the first 3 persons who comment in this post something hand made within a years time. (Thank you to whoever came up with that rule!). Maybe something edible, maybe something sewn, or who knows? But definitely hand made! And received before this time next year. Oh the mystery! What will it be?

Here’s the rub: If you sign up to receive a hand made gift you need to “pay it forward” on your own blog. That is, you’ll make a post similar to this and then promise and hand make a gift for three other bloggers. The gift that you send to your 3 friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember it’s the spirit and the thought that count! C’mon, an-y-thing home made by you within the year! You can do this! How fun!

So o.k. comment away!

I'm smarter than you

Apparently Tyler and Hannah were arguing yesterday about who was smarter. During her bath, Hannah was complaining to John that Tyler thought he was smarter but she knew she was because she was in school. John tried to explain to her that just because she was in school didn't mean she was smarter. He tried to explain that people are smarter in different ways and used several examples but everything kept falling on deaf ears. Finally he said, "You know Tyler's smarter than you in riding bikes because he can ride without training wheels." She thought for a minute and said, "Daddy, tomorrow can you take the training wheels off my bike?"

Here's a little video of Tyler riding without training wheels.
