Today was home schooling "test day" and the boys buckled down this morning and took their Geography and Math tests. The both did a great job and we celebrated our first home schooling week by bicycling to a nice lunch at La Varza on West Lake. It was the warmest day of the year so far, about 70 degrees and we were all overdressed for the weather!
After lunch, we rented these little boats to drive around the lake. Of course the boys LOVED driving the little boat around.
Sue and I sat in back and let them drive.
Peter reviewed the safety instructions that were given to us with the boat. We could see they were numbered 1 thru 10, but beyond that, we didn't have a clue.
Our nautical chauffeurs for the afternoon...
Motoring next to the Bei Causeway...
The sun came out and so did the cotton candy, which Peter and Jack both sampled.
We rode down to West Lake and back, and all around the city. Our legs are tired today as we figure we rode more than 10 miles. On a bicycle it's not all that far, but doing it in stop and start traffic with a 6 story stair climb at the end is another story!
After 1/2 hour of rest, it's back on the bike to go get Sophie from school!
