First grade poem






First a little background. While our daughter was in preschool my commute was often multi-modal. I would drive to the preschool and park the car there, then ride to work or ride to the bus if the weather was iffy. I could then ride back from work get her from the school and drive home. It worked for us and apparently it also impressed our youngest son enough to write about it. Now, I will not lie here. When I read this the first time I choked up. I was not aware that this process of commuting to work on my bike would inspire any of my kids.

If your having trouble reading his handwriting it reads.

My Dad is Lightning

My
dad is like
lightning
he rides to
work and back
going up down up

down to pick

up my sister.




I think it's cool.

I agree: Your son is cool.

Your son rules.

Realizing the influence you've made on your kids like this is the best, isn't it? I love when I get home from work at the same time my wife is bringing the kids home from day care, and my son can't wait to get out of the car so he can sit on my bike while I roll it into the garage.
