We finally got a break in the weather and I decided to try to teach Josiah to ride his bike again. After two laps around the neighborhood, running into a minivan, car trailer, countless driveways and lawns, and even his little sister and I, Josiah can officially say he has ridden his bike without training wheels! After the second time around, I ran into get my camera so I could shoot some video of him. They are a little shaky because I was either running to see if he was hurt OR trying so hard NOT to laugh. It was seriously so stinking funny.
Here a few short video clips you might find just slightly entertaining at my son's expense. (Really, he loves it when I put things on the blog about him.) No, he didn't get seriously hurt in any of these incidents. I think he'll sleep good tonight! He may be even a little sore in the morning.
Josiah showing Hailey his owies. I think he was glad I made him put on a long sleeved shirt. This was the first time Hailey got to ride a bike with training wheels. She was so happy to be riding a "big" bike.
It was nice to see my kids using their determination in a positive way (not always the case, trust me). Hailey just insisted on trying to get unstuck herself. She was slow but steady. Josiah just kept falling and getting back up. I couldn't believe we made it as long as we did. Neither of them wanted to go inside for dinner, but my nerves had all I could take by that time. I think they're hooked! How do I know, hum lets see. I caught my "Denise the Menace" riding through the house. Yep, I think he's hooked!
