footloose and training wheel free

One of our goals for the summer was to get Hannah’s training wheels off her bike. 

Tuesday we took them off.

After a few hours of practice, a lot of self talk (“I know I can do this!”), and a couple of tumbles….

She got the hang of it! 

Speaking of hanging…

Eli was keeping busy on the playground while Hannah practiced.

Mastering a bike takes a lot of practice and we will continue to do so as Hannah still needs to work on a couple very important elements:

1) Steering

2) Remembering the bike has brakes. 

But by the end of the summer I am sure she will be leaving us all in the dust!

Congrats to the big girl! Caleb still has his training wheels, but part of that is due to the fact that our driveway/street isn't conducive to riding his bike. :( Oh well...in due time...

Maybe this will be the kick Jacob needs to get his off (again). I wonder if bringing the bike up with us next month might help...

I love Hannah's choice of bike riding outfits. What a good boy Eli was to keep himself amused.
