let's celebrate!

Stephanie learned to ride her bike without training wheels today! We tried this once before but she freaked out and we had to put the training wheels back on. She has refused to ride her bike now for some time because she's embarrassed by the training wheels, but too scared to take them off.  She doesn't like to fall. Frankly, I don't blame her there, but it's gonna happen. I made encouraged her to ride her ride her bike today because she's been falling on her scooter lately. Time to switch up the activities. The girls were playing with one of the boys across the street and some of his friends.  Travis taught Stephanie how to ride his bike. Travis came running to tell us he taught her and she was grinning from ear to ear when she showed us. Heather was sobbing because she was so happy for her sissy. (huh?) We took her training wheels off right away and there was no stopping her. I guess what she needed was someone her size to put things into perspective.
