He did it!

Last summer we thought Tyler would be excited about learning to ride his bike without training wheels. So, we never put them on his new bike and practiced a few times. Problem is that my boys aren't the adventurous, do-anything type. So, he barely rode his bike at all last summer.

That made me think that maybe we should just put the training wheels back on so he can enjoy his bike this summer. Paul went out with him once or twice and practiced and we both tried to convince him that it really isn't TOO scary.

Needless to say, Monday night he got the hang of it and was off. Once he realized he was riding on his own he was determined to do it over and over and over. Then he wanted to try it on all different surfaces. "Mom! I taught myself how to ride my bike on grass!!!"

Here are some pictures of the success. The first couple of pictures he has his tongue sticking out while he concentrates. The look on his face in the last picture is awesome!
