Taking the Training Wheels Off


Ben learns to ride his bike 

So, my son hates doing anything he's not already good at. (I can't imagine where he gets it from...) Which is probably why he's been so loathe to learn how to ride his bike, and has barely ridden the thing (with training wheels) more than a handful of times in the last few years. This Labor Day, we finally said enough was enough, and took the training wheels off his bike, and went outside to help Ben learn how to ride his bike! Boy was he mad at us, but ultimately, our plan worked. Adam was showing him bicycle riding technique, and we spent the next hour outside. By the end, Ben was able to ride down the block (albeit a little wobbly) and we have some pretty sweet first bike ride photos to show for it. Good job, kiddo!
