Cycling Champ

Remember how Ellie has bike-riding homework? Well, she's been working hard on it and come so far. The magic trick was taking the training wheels off once she was comfortable pedaling. That only took about a week. I honestly think that training wheels for kids her age are a crutch and almost do more harm than good on the balance front. It took about two days for her to go from riding 5 feet to riding the length of our sidewalk.

That was two days ago. Today? She rode 3.5 miles with Jim while he was running. I have high hopes of taking a family bike ride and picnic once Aeryn comes home.
