Jack was riding his bike in our circle this afternoon as the sun sank lower towards the horizon. He'd been out there for a good while when suddenly he stopped riding and started crying with his "hurt" cry. I went to him and asked what was wrong.
His response: "Da sun ud duh bonk ud duh eyes."
Translation: "The sun bonked me in the eyes."
I just had to laugh as I went to find his hat. I put it on under his helmet and he stayed out to ride for another hour.
A note about the bike: Yes, I know it's a girls bike. We just weren't prepared for him to be into bike riding when he was 2 1/2, or for him to get so good at it so quickly. By mid-summer we'll probably have to take off the training wheels. It scares me a little. I can see dirtbiking in his not-so-distant future...
