Look What Trey Learned To Do...






It was finally feeling like spring outside today again so we decided after lunch it was time for daddy to teach Trey to ride his bike without training wheels! Unfortunately the kids don't get to ride bikes around our house much because lot's of cars park on the streets in our neighborhood so it's not real practical or safe for kids riding bikes (or else Johnny and i are just overprotective and scared to let them out of our eyesight :) Anyway Trey has been riding with one training wheel for the last year, and today it came off! We went over to a church parking lot by our house so that he had lot's of space. He is quite the perfectionist and if it doesn't work just like how he plans the first time he get's a bit frustrated, but after sticking with it for about 20 minutes he was off on his own. He had a hard time getting started and stopping for awhile and had a couple of crashes, one into the van and he wanted to stop but daddy told him to get back on his bike, and then the other one him and Avery crashed into each other. When he was getting frustrated with the starting, he was trying to convince me "that he was going to hurt himself really bad and have to go to the hopital". We had to be a little tough on him and say "get going!" He is very proud of himself now that he can do it, and excited to tell his cousins. A few more times over to the parking lot and he will be feeling a lot more comfortable!
