We are at week four of our 52 week project. 18 amazing photographer, 18 interpretations. To read more about it, go here. This week’s theme is “SIGNS”.
This theme could not have come at a better time. Last week, our 8 yr old’s bicycle was stolen from her elementary school. We bought it a few days before Christmas. Dec 20 to be exact. This was her first big girl bike with the brake levers on the handle bars. So exciting! So she decides to take it school. We don’t have a bike lock, never thought we needed one. We live in a very safe community, so who would take the bike? And so after choir practice she walked home. It didn’t occur to us that she left her bike until after we were heading out to walk our dog, the next day. We walked to the school only to find her helmet, no bike. K was upset, I was fuming. Hubby and I decided that it would be a good idea to post flyers or “signs”. So we typed some up and posted them over the weekend. We even have one up at the Starbuck’s and at the school’s bike rack. It has been a week and nothing. It’s gone. Whenever I head out to run an errand I cant keep myself from taking an extra look here or there. I have been taking different routes home in hopes of finding it too. K is soooo sweet and offered to use her birthday money to buy a new one. I don’t think I’ll let her do that. Even when we do buy her a new one, I don’t know when I’ll eventually stop looking.
