In addition to all the woods adventures, both boys stepped up a level in bike riding. Caleb finally learned how to ride without training wheels. He had been really hesitant to try until just recently, so I asked my dad to work with him and Caleb was immediately able to ride the 2-wheeler. Yeay! Joshua had been riding a way too small tricycle and was afraid to move to the bike with training wheels, but he is now riding away on that. How wonderful. These two can now really zoom around the cul-de-sac!
We also took a trip downtown to the American History Museum and National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum on Saturday (sans Deborah, Andrew and Joshua). Caleb really enjoyed the portrait museum. We weren't sure how he would do there, but he said "I don't know why everyone kept saying I would be bored. I like everything I'm seeing!" His favorites were the unfinished picture of Woodrow Wilson and the license plates that write out the Preamble to the Constitution.
Our last fun for Thanksgiving weekend was putting the Christmas tree up. Caleb and Joshua put on all the ornaments this year!
