Biker Boy

While I was away on my ladies' retreat a couple of weeks ago, my son learned to ride his bike without his training wheels. A great accomplishment being that he had little desire to learn how to ride in the first place - so we were having to "force" him to practice.

Of course now that he is riding he loves it! I like this picture b/c of the look on concentration on his sweet face.

When I was helping him with his bath soon after he began riding I was shocked to see all the bruises on his body. What on earth happened!! Was it some dread disease that was causing him to bruise all over his body?? Well it was just from all his spills. He continues to have quite a few falls but he usually gets ride back on. Brave chap.

I am not pushing i. My son is the kid who insists on staying beside mommy the whole time we are out and is nervous of most new things. I think it will be a while.

It is so exciting to be able to ride a bike ! Your son will appreciate your "prodding" before too long. All my children (5) learned to ride at the ages of 5 and 6.They loved it !
