Wordless (Almost) Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday is hosted at Beth Fish Reads
I have a difficult time being wordless hence my addition to the title.

My youngest learned how to ride her bicycle without training wheels over Spring Break last week.
All my babies seem to be riding away from me.
When I figure out exactly how I feel about that, I'll let you know.


  1. When I visit the WW site, I always start with the last person to sign up with Mr. Linky !
    That would be you ! First of all, am so impressed with the fact you finished your Ph.D. with a family . . . husband, two daughters, and while you're studying . . .having another one ! Wow ! I always wanted to work on my "Piled Higher and Deeper" degree, but just never got it all together.
    Love the photos. They may ride away from you on a bicycle, but they will always find a way to stay in your heart.

  2. Aw! I know the feeling. My baby is now driving away. Great shot, perfect words :)

  3. That makes me weepy! Reminds me of when my kids were slightly younger and less sassy.

  4. First and foremost congratulations to your daughter on her accomplishment. I'm sure she feels very independent. Our children really do make us understand the meaning of bittersweet.

  5. Love the title of your post! ;) Great picture!! Happy WW!

  6. An independent young lady with her own wheels! You gotta be proud of that one.

  7. This is truly momentous!

    Happy WW!!


  8. I love the glow on her pedals and the reflector! I remember going without training wheels to be a thrilling experience!

    My sister just finished her PhD, and has decided she'd like to be an advisor to those in the middle of the PhD chaos on concrete steps to actually get it finished and provide encouragement!

  9. Great capture of such a bittersweet moment!

  10. Hurray for your youngest! They ride away, but they never go far and they always come back. :-)

  11. This strikes me as a very poignant photo. Great capture!

  12. Oh dear. Isn't this just the biggest conundrum?
    We give them the skills to build their independence, yet we miss them so much when they're gone. sigh.
