a blog about a life in progress
Yesssss!!!! Way to go buddy! :-D For the record, my brother (Mr. Bob himself) didn't learn to ride a two wheeler until he was 12. And that was only because my parents promised to buy him a Nintendo game if he did. His fear of falling was finally outdone by his motivation for video games. :-) Turned out that he loved riding after he learned! Was there anything special that motivated Wylie?
Thanks for sharing that, Shelly! Actually, it was sheer desire to be able to do it. I had them out on my mountain bike the first attempt--too big a bike, too frustrating for all. On my way home from teaching yesterday I stopped at Target, picked up two 20inch bikes on sale, that did the trick. I would say an hour and a half total training time. Today, they rode all around the community park while I got my run in. Thrilled beyond belief. And, Tim (who is in Afghanistan right now) thinks I am the most amazing parent on the planet...miss you!
