We Have A Rider!
She might only be in preschool and still have baby teeth, but she can add bike rider to her resume. We've been trying to get her interested in riding her bike all summer, but she just didn't want to do it. We took the training wheels and pedals off long ago, but she decided her scooter was the way to go. Recently, some of the neighborhood kids came over and asked Tot to go bike riding with them. Bean wanted to go but she couldn't because she wasn't a bike rider.
I think that lit the fire underneath her. She's been asking to practice every since. Day after day Bee and I have been watching her learn to balance on her bike. Today she really showed us she was ready, so the pedals went on.
And the girl? She took off.
She is so very proud of herself and so are we. It's just awesome to see her accomplishments.
Tomorrow at school the show and tell letter is B. We took this picture, printed it out, and she'll be showing her friends and telling them that today she learned to ride her Bike!
(I'm embarrassed that I only have a picture from my phone, but it was late and I didn't have time to run home to get the real camera. It was about the moment, people!)
