1000 Wells

Written on January 06th, 2007 by Shawn Anthony

The first few bicycles owned by each of my children are archived in the family basement. They are all the same size: 12″ bicycles. They are so little. One bike has its training wheels still attached, while the others hint of advanced bike riding abilities. I simply see little bikes once joyfully peddled around by my children. They are special family artifacts. I cherish them! My kids will too someday! I do not doubt that they will be thankful for my preservation of them. I will not save all of the bicycles they will own and ride throughout the course of their lives here at home, but I do have their first few. I have collected three 12″ bikes, three 16″ bikes, and my son just got a brand new 20″ bike. The first bikes are the most special bikes, to say the least.

  1. Lovely thought Shawn… my son has a three wheel bicycle, and is stillriding it. He is two! But after reading your post I am now going to keep it after he discards it.
