Last Friday, Abby's school sponsoreda Trike-A-Thon that supports St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. But mostly, I think, it was to teach the kids some bicycle safety. They had done several lessons in class leading up to the big day.

We were praying for no rain, but I guess we should have added "warm" to the prayer list. The day was cloudy and a little brisk. We dressed Abby in her winter coat.

She had a blast going round and round the church/school parking lot. One of the teachers said she thought Abby went the most times around. Most kids were done after two laps. Not our little Lance Armstrong. We probably walked a mile just going around behind her.

Here she is getting ready to get off her bike to cross the "road."

One of her teachers is explaining to stop at Railroad Crossings to listen for the train.

It's safe to cross!

I ran home after she was done. Gotta get those miles in before the race this Saturday!
