Biking!

Well, I am off my crutches. I am sure that anyone who has seen me walk around without them would agree that I really should still be using them, on account that I walk around like the hunchback of Notre Dame. Ha!

But it feels great to carry 2 around again when she needs me, pick up my house, do laundry, get my own food. It’s nice. You really take those sort of things for granted--I mean they are so simple.

Also, the doctor said, “no more sports.” That was heart braking. He said I should get into swimming and biking. Swimming doesn’t really appeal to me--since I look like a dog who didn’t learn the paddle. So I believe I am going to get into biking. I have a stationary bike that I use but, I want to get my mountain bike out when I am better and who knows, maybe I will start a club or something and a bunch of us girls can bike!!!!

Hey there Rachael,
This is Christine Knopp aka (Asher's mom) I am sooooo slow, I just got on to see your blogspot and check out the recipe for granola...I'm not sure if you got around to it or if I just don't know how to navigate online very well, this is my first time on a blog...but it is fascinating and soo much fun to get to know your family...I think I want to start one...

you know rach, swimming is really fun too! And i don't know how hard it would be but we have two bikes and a trailer we could put the girls in there and ride to the park.

Glad to hear you are off of crutches and no doubt your kids are happy about it too. Things just don't go as smoothly when mom's are out of commission huh! Too bad we don't live closer because I love biking. I haven't been in years because I don't have a bike. But, I hope that when my kids are old enough to all go biking, then I'll get one and we can go together. Hey maybe you could bike up to my house! ha ha!
