After months of work the boys have earned enough money to buy new bikes. It helped them to buy bikes at the end of summer because they were on sale (they saved more then 40 %). Juergen also bought our princess a new bike helmet. She picked out this lovely hot wheel helmet! I said "Juergen, she's a girl!!!" But she chases her brothers everywhere...and she wanted hot wheels! It's like I adopted 3 boys, at least for now. She is a fire cracker!!! I'm so glad we did not just give the boys new bikes. They are really learning to work for what they want, and there is a new level of pride that comes from the accomplishment.
