Hymns and a Broken Bike

James' bike broke on the way to school yesterday. The seat just cracked and eventually fell off. I can't complain. It was a hand-me-down from his buddy Noah, and he has used a lot in the two years he's had it. The tires were bald and it was getting too small. For now, James will be without his beloved wheels til we can find something suitable for him. I think he will go into withdrawals if I don't find one soon. Craigslist, here I come!

In other news, the kids love hymns which makes me very happy! James will bring me one of my hymn books and sit with me while I sing song after song. I happen to collect hymn books, and have a real church pew in my house...from the church I grew up going to, and the church I got married in. It is my favorite piece of furniture. Anywho....back to the hymns. Sometimes James plays along with his harmonica. At night, the kids usually revolt if I don't sing them a few verses of Amazing Grace. They sing along, getting some of the words right and singing their little hearts out. Its one of my favorite things ever!

We found the Tallin a really neat bike at the Salvation Army for $10. It was pink!

Maybe you can find a deal also!
