Blue Turning Gray

On our trailer-bike ride today my daughter sang me most of the songs on the soundtrack to the movie Tangled, as well as a few numbers from The Sound Of Music, too.  We also discussed many things as we rode along through the woods together, including whether or not angels have wings, and what the Earth was like before God did anything with it.

Perhaps most importantly, after she accidentally peed on her shoes while taking a break behind a tree, we had a long talk about how important it is to have a mountain-biker's attitude when you're out in the woods having fun.
"When things go wrong, what does a mountain biker do?"
"A mountain biker deals with it."
It's an important lesson, even if you've never peed on your shoes during a ride.  Another one of those great bike-makes-life lessons.
