There are 2 big kid in this house that can ride their bikes without training wheels! It was super hard to get pictures of them because they were zooming all over the place!
Julie has been completely able to ride her bike without training wheels for a while now but she had no confidence so she didn't want to do it. But last night, she got on, determined and was riding, turning, starting and stopping without help or me running next to her!
We took Andy's training wheels off the same day we took Julie's off, but even with practice, his balance just wasn't there yet. So we took his peddles of a week ago so he could use his feet to balance and push himself on the bike. Last night he begged for us to put the peddles back on so John did and Andy ZOOMED out of the driveway and never looked back.  That was seriously the best thing we ever did! He did not fall once. And he was able to stop and start without any problem because he had been using his feet for the last week to level his bike.
Both kids were so excited when the neighbors came out to play so they could show off their new skills! Now that we know how much easier it is to learn without peddles or training wheels, Sadie will probably be zooming along next to them in no time!  I am so proud of my big kids.
