Project Ride Smart

This week was all street rides. I love my red groups. Mostly they still need to practice basic bike handling skills with minimal on-street maneuvers.We took a little off-pavement pathwhere we discovered the place where Sponge Bob Squarepants lives with his friends according to the boys who described everything in detail.The last class on the last day. Another super successful program!

Big Little Lies

Over the past 3 1/2 weeks, Adrienne and Phyl came over four times to watch the HBO series Big Little LiesWe had easy quick hors snacks the first three times. Tonight we had dinner before watching the final episode. (Note the in-progress Charizard costume lurking in the upper right corner.)

Phyl provided dessert for afterwards.
