The old Tractor

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I remember this tractor well from childhood. Dad mad this for Wayne and I, not sure what year that was. Looks like Hazel is *almost* too big for it:

For Halloween this year, Hazel dressed as Hermione Granger. And here she is with her pumpkin, which she cleaned out and carved herself.

Hazel’s early birthday present

Hazel’s a third grader now and walking or riding her bike to and from school each day. For a couple of years now, she’s been getting around on her trusty Dazzle Jazz with its 18″ tires.

Hazel grew an inch between the end of 2nd grade and the start of 3rd. It was time to step up to a sporty new Trek, with its 20″ rims.

After a few adjustments and a safety checkout at the bike store, Hazel’s ready to roll. This bike rates two thumbs up from Hazel, mostly because she finally has a kick-stand.
