Look Mom! No training wheels!!!






Jake has been on vacation (at home) this week and since the weather has been ideal to play outside, he and Owen have embarked on a new adventure. Learning to ride a bike WITHOUT training wheels! When we first broached the topic about a month ago, Owen basically said, "no" (with a little drama thrown in there). Apparently after starting Kindergarten, you decide things that were once challenges or obstacles are worth an effort of tackling. I'm sure we'll have our share of scrapes and bumps during this exciting process, but watching a father and son work together is worth it. How do you say it... "Priceless".

Another milestone! I can remember you and Jenny.....I think an advantage was the small hill we lived on...it's ability to give you a big push on your own...The scrapes and bruises....the battlescars and trophies of the success! The process of letting go....
