A last tai chi lesson

Our neighbors grandparents Wai Po and Wai Gon are returning to China next week. Wai Gon has been teaching Liam to practice tai chi. Last night Liam received one final lesson before we left.
This time he added five new steps, so that they could go all the way through the full 15 steps.
Liam is always eager to practice tai chi. He is also designing his own martial art form called Chin-adiu. 
Wai Gon is equally eager to teach Liam, too. It’s a wonderful combination to watch. On this last night of practice, the two of them kept at it until I came to get Liam because it was dark at 9 PM!

Just. One. Day?

Today I came home, and we had dinner like usual. Afterwards we went out to ride our bikes. Liam wanted to ride the scooter bike and so did Reid. We got the scooter bike first. So Liam was left with his bike with no training wheels. That is a big challenge. Or so I thought. At first I started helping Liam by holding him. And then I was only holding a little bit. And then I was not holding a him at all. Then I was just running behind him. And I was running alongside him. Then I was taking pictures. It all happened so fast.
