Sport's day possible on tues?

Last year, A1's sport's day in school was postponed and then cancelled as both days were raining heavily.
This year, the sport's day would be held on 27 May. 
Looking at the weather forecast, it announces storm. The sport's day would most likely be postponed or cancelled. 
The boys go for multi-sports activity every tues after school. It is usually in the community hall. But since a month, the boys are practising cycling at the school's car park. And every tues evening, it rains. Sometimes they cycled under the rain. Speaking of which, A2 can cycle all by himself. Happy for him.

So let's see if the weather changes for the better come tues.

A2 is off his training wheels

For the past week, A2 had been asking us to take off his training wheels on his bicycle and trying to cycle by himself. We helped to push him as he could not find the balance and the strength to start.
He was a cautious boy and started step by step. He practiced almost everyday for 15mins. Today, he did well. He could turn the handlebars and made a big turn.
It won't be long before he could find his balance when starting the bicycle.
Just four months short of his four years, he has joined his brother in cycling on two wheels. I would have to get on my bicycle if I want to catch up with them when the boys go out cycling. It is hard to catch up with the boys by foot.
Maybe the next post would be about me brushing up my rusty cycling skills.

Two sundays ago, we visited Honfleur with my brother and my sister-in-law. It was my second visit. My first visit was more than ten years ago. Seb and I could not remember how it looked like though we both enjoyed our trip then.
So it was good to come again to this lovely town. We had crepes for lunch and then walked around the town.
The children took rides on the merry-go-round and they had fun in the playgound at the park. We walked along the seaside too.
Here are some photos taken at Honfleur.
