Tee (4.5 years old) told us weeks ago it was time to take his training wheels off.  He’s been riding his balance bike more than his pedal bike lately and I think that was the trick.  Feeling the balance of the bike and seeing some (bigger) boys riding without training wheels was just the inspiration he needed!

Thom took him out, strapped the helmet on and prepared to catch crashes and frustration.  Instead, with a little shove, Tee was off!  Can you see the joy in his face?  It’s like this freedom.  The wind in his face and going as fast as he can pedal.  He knows how to get started, ride, turn, stand up while peddling and stop.  I. Am. Floored.

Tears of joy as I watch my first-born on such a big day in his life.  Pure joy.
