Riding my Bike, Plus Church!

On Sunday, Mark helped me to ride my bike!  I did it the first time!  I can ride my bike!

I can ride it in the grass.  I can ride it on the bumps.  I can ride it on the dirt driveway.  I can’t ride it if both cars are there, I have trouble driving it through.

I feel good about it!  I snitched one of the pictures Mark took of me.  I like this picture!

I got to go to the First Grade Class for Sunday School!  Momma and Daddy surprised me by being my teachers!  I don’t remember my other teachers.  I like it!  It will be a fun year!

On Sunday before church in the morning, the butterfly hatched!   Oma taught me a poem about a butterfly in the three year old Sunday School class.

I saw a little caterpillar. It wiggled up a tree.
It wiggled long, it wiggled short, it wiggled right at me!
I put him in a little box, “Don’t go away!” I said.
But when I opened up the box, he was a butterfly instead!
I could never make one, even if I tried.
Only God in Heaven can make a butterfly!

We let our butterfly go.  It will go to Mexico, so it can stay there for the winter.  She will married and then she will have her babies.   She will lay her eggs on the way back.

Making a chrysalis

Yesterday, we saw a caterpillar hang in a “j”.  Then it made its chrysalis!  It made a chrysalis faster than the last one!  He wiggled.  He is a wiggle worm! Now he is in his chysalis.  He is all green with yellow dots on his front and black and white on top.  The white is holding him up to some paper.

Today we saw another one make his chrysalis.  It took longer than all of them to start making his chrysalis.

I liked watching it make the chrysalis. 

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!
