Jarret and Amy have out grown their bikes, so we bought Jarret a new one (George too) and gave Amy Jarret's old bike. She was using her bike with training wheels until today. We took her out this morning to get started in teaching her how to ride without them. Well she was awesome! She learned how to ride in an hour!! I am not kidding you. It was great. She had one bad fall where the tears came and we sat on the bench for a bit.. but she got right back on and wouldn't give up. She is a bit shaky starting by herself.. but she can do it. It was great to watch!
We bought her some pink streamers since she is stuck with a boys hand me down bike. They will go on next time we head out. We didn't want them getting wrecked if she fell on them while learning. No worries about that now.
I have set a goal for myself.. I want to ride to and from work one day. According to Google maps from home to work is 16km! I hope I can do it by the end of May. I don't want to do it now cause I am so out of shape. I will work my way up to it. I will do it on a Friday as its casual on Fridays and my hair will be flat from my helmet and I will have my work clothes in my backpack.. I would rather have jeans in there then dress clothes. I need to get into shape for summer.. especially for Jen's wedding in August.
Well.. that's it for now..
