Trying to Ride my Bike

Yesterday we took a walk.  Daddy got home before us.  I got my bike out.  I tried riding it and I couldn’t.  I looked at both sides and I couldn’t find the training wheel!   I was only riding with one training wheel before.  You can see in the pictures I am learning to ride a bike without training wheels!

I want the wheel on my girly bike fixed for my birthday.  I also want a “pretty, girly” helmet.

I am doing very well riding my bike, but I am still having trouble.  The bike I am using is wiggly and I can’t get control of it.  I need that fixed!  (Momma said it really is a wiggly bike, not just me learning how to ride!)

I am learning to ride my bike in the road.  I tried today and yesterday.  Momma took pictures.  Momma and everyone else looks for cars.

Momma says everyone falls at least once, but I don’t like it!

I don’t know how long until I am going to ride my bike alone.

Chrysalis

Today the caterpillar made his chrysalis.  Momma took a picture of it for me.  It is all green except for a yellow “crack” and yellow dots.  I like it!

This morning he was hanging in a “j”.  He builded it by wiggling.  He started from the bottom and worked up.  I don’t know what that’s called where he is hanging.

Soon it will turn into a pretty butterfly!

We found a caterpillar!

We looked on a leaf– actually a milkweed leaf–and Momma found Monarch butterfly eggs and caterpillars!  After church, we stopped to get some milkweed because we were running low and Momma found a big Monarch caterpillar, a big one and big one!  It looked like it was going to make its cocoon tomorrow.

It ate a whole milkweed leaf since yesterday!

I hope it makes a beautiful girl butterfly.  It makes a cocoon and then turns into a beautiful butterfly!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
