We originally started this blog (years ago) to keep track of the every day things in our lives that we didn't want to forget but knew that we would in time. As life got in the way, we posted less and less until March 2010 when Matthew's arrival rocked our world. Now we use this blog to let everyone know how Matthew is progressing and the big events going on at the Hoy House. We are so appreciative of everyone who has read our story and has thought and prayed for Matthew and for us.
Jackson has been riding his bike for a month, but has had trouble starting out. Given Jackson's history with patience and persistence (not his current strengths), I was totally surprised when yesterday he figured out how to start on his bike--on his own, without prodding, after trying time after time, without really getting frustrated. I was so proud and excited for him!
Tonight we went on a family bike ride. I loved watching Alyssa in the lead, Jackson navigating like it was old hat, and Matthew enjoying the ride from the seat behind Darren. Great day!
