I just had to share these pictures of my little one today. I took his training wheels off this afternoon! This is the first time he had ridden his bike without them. He was very reluctant, didn't think he could do it but I got him started and he never looked back. He is so proud of himself he is beside himself. He had to go back out and ride one more time to see if he had forgotten! We called Daddy at work and told him and he got the appropriate "atta boys" then I took pictures. He is 5 years old. I also remember vividly the day my oldest rode his bike for the first time too without training wheels. He was 4. Yes, 4. Both my boys have good balance for their age. Naturally athletic. My oldest was told he could get a scholarship to college with his hand-eye coordination he has in Tennis but will he play Tennis? let alone any sports at all? NO! Why do kids with talent waste it? I am sick of forcing it with him (he is 15 now) so I am trying a different approach with the younger one! Anyway riding a bike is such a milestone for boys, they work hard at it and when they achieve it they own the world :) So thank you for looking at my sweet little one and his new achievement.
