Izzy reached another milestone on Sunday!!! No more training wheels! We've tried all summer here and there...subtle suggestions but no pushing. Then, on Sunday, Joacim took her out for a ride and asked her if we could take them off. She said she was afraid of falling, and Joacim somehow convinced her that he'd catch her, and they were off! I think she took right to it too!
There was LOTS of riding up and down the sidewalk and around the neighborhood. There were a couple of trips around the big pond, and even one outside of the neighborhood onto city sidewalks (with Joacim). I think, in all that day, she rode a total of 5 miles! And the only reason it wasn't more was because it got dark ;)
|Such a cute little dork :)|
She even started getting "fancy" by standing up on her pedals and "riding"! I LOVE watching her ride her bike now...such a happy smile on her face! I guess I know what we'll be doing a LOT of in the next few weeks!
And from the looks of it, she'll be needing a new bike next summer, which sounds like a perfect 7th birthday present!
