I've been telling Brenner for quite some time that it's time he learns how to ride a bike! He is old enough to be embarrassed that he can't ride a bike without training wheels but still too scared to try to ride it. He got a scooter for Easter and he has no problem balancing on it. I've been telling him that if he can ride and balance on the scooter, he can ride his bike. So, today he was riding his scooter down our short slanted driveway. So, I grabbed a small old bike that we had taken the pedals off of so that they could just sit and coast on it. He did that a couple of times and realized that he really could do it. So, with the encouragement of our neighbors that assured him they used to have training wheels on their bikes too, we took off the training wheels! All I had to do was get him started and he was off!!!
Wow! How nice will this be!!!
Now we just need to teach him h0w to start and stop on his own and how to better handle the corners!
He just needed a little encouragement from friends... and a nice, warm day.
Now, it's Joren's turn!!!
