A sure sign that winter is upon us is the absence of little tykes on bikes. When winter again gives way to spring (soon), you will know it by the amount of bicycles back out on pavement.
In the meantime, the bike is put away in the garage and the endless energy of children is focused elsewhere … mainly tearing up the house.
Stuck in Winter
A few winters ago I was ministering for a friend in Anchorage, AK. We were in the middle of below freezing temps, and already pining for warmer days. Usually during these cold times a person buys things for winter play such as sleds, snow boots, etc.
In the middle of this dark, cold, unending January, the Pastor’s son was given a gift card for Toys-R-Us. If it were I, I would have bought something for winter – like a sled; but this guy spent his card on a bicycle.
