Finally "Flying" Solo

I am so proud of Audrey. She learned how to ride her bike without training wheels this week. She was VERY reluctant to take them off. The neighbors have a little 12 inch bike that has no training wheels and she was riding IT, but her knees were like up to her ears and she couldn't get much speed and she couldn't balance all that great with her knees so high. We told her it would be a lot easier to rider her OWN bike without training wheels because it was the right size. She really didn't want to, but we convinced her to give it 3 tries and if she didn't like it we'd put the training wheels back on. Ben also told her he'd buy her ice cream if she got scraped up. So, a pint of ice cream later she is riding her bike like a pro! I can't believe how big she is! Along the bike lines, we ended up buying Marissa a 12 inch bike because Trent would freak out every time Marissa rode her tricycle. He thinks it's HIS. Well, NOW it is. I hope everyone will be happy for at least a year now!! lol

Go Audrey! We are still trying to get Kierra to ride without training wheels, she has tried a couple times but doesn't really like it. She doesn't even seem to care that her little brother is riding without training wheels and she isn't!
