Anyway, so Emma has been practicing riding her bike without training wheels in our backyard. There's not much room, so she rides one way, then has to stop, turn her bike around, and ride the other way. She has been counting down the days until Daddy got off work so that we could do a real ride on the bike bath. So, not knowing how it would go, Daddy and Emma went ahead, and Caleb was on his bike with his training wheels (he has been working on it too!), and I was with him pushing Noah in the jogger. Well, Emma just took off. She did a little over 2 miles, with Daddy RUNNING as fast as he could to keep up. Caleb is already pretty fast, so I ran with him for, let's say 1/4 mile or so, before I had to stop and ask him to slow down. I know that walking is really good for my leg, but with the running, I could feel all the pressure in my vein and I thought maybe slowing down would be a good idea.
Ben and I decided that we are going to have to invest or borrow a bike trailer because we are really past the point of trying to keep up with children on bikes!!
But the point is, Emma did her first bike path ride without training wheels. And I know it is cliche and people tell you this all the time, but man...it sure is going way too fast.
