A Day With Bella

Hi all, Kit here! Long time no blog. Since the rest of the girls were at camp today, Bella and I got to hang out for the afternoon.

"I can't believe you've never ridden a scooter before!" I laughed as I helped Bella get on. 

"I know, I know. I've just never had the opportunity to learn before!" she smiled. 
"Don't worry, I'll be here every step of the way," I assured her.  

"Put your hands there to steer, and then kick off." I said, showing Bella where to put her hands and feet. 
"Thanks!" she replied happily. 

"You're doing it!" I let go of the handlebars after guiding her down the street for some time.
"I'm doing it - I'm doing it!!" Bella squealed. 

In all the excitement, neither one of us noticed where Bella was heading - straight for a rock! 

"Look out!" I yelled, but it was too late. 

Bella crashed to the ground, face-first. 
"Ow." I heard her say. 

"Let me help you up," I said, rushing over. 
"Thanks," Bella replied, dusting herself off. "Now c'mon, help me get back on!"

"The only way for me to learn is to try again!" she laughed as I helped her onto the scooter. 

I was a little surprised, considering scootering isn't typically one of Bella's favorite pastimes, but I admired her determination. By the end of the day, she was nearly a pro! 

We walked back to our house and sat down on the bench, talking and laughing. 

Until next time! :)


  1. Wow, this was so cute! I love Bella!

  2. That was such a pretty overcast day, your street reminds me of Seabrook, a little beach town that we stay at sometimes. It must be the picket fence or pretty houses.
    I like Bella's outfit. I was trying to learn to skateboard a few days ago and wound up falling off the same way she did. I skinned my elbows and knees, but it was fun anyway.

    1. Yes, it really was a beautiful day! Our house is in a beachy-like town, with old houses, picket fences, and ivy crawling up old brick walls. :)
      Thank you! I actually just found the shirt a few days ago at an old toy store and thought it would be perfect for my dolls. Haha, yeah, I'm terrible at skateboarding. xD
