“Look Ma, No Training Wheels!”


Annie has been trying to ride her bike without training wheels.  It’s been interesting, to say the least.  Even though Annie can be a daredevil at times (most times!), she’s been reluctant to ride without those trusted wheels.  But we’re making progress (never mind that she once went off the road and down into the ditch, almost making contact with a fence).  Can we say thank God for tall, soft grass?  Amen.

It takes a lot of encouragement to help along a budding biker, especially one that falls over every 2 seconds.

“It’s okay!  Just get right back up on that horse!” I told Annie.

“Huh? What horse?” Annie asked.

“It just means don’t give up.  If you fall off of a horse, you get right back up and ride the horse again!” I explained.

Then big sis Katie chimed in, “But that’s not ALWAYS true. The rodeo horse riders can’t get back up on their horse.  Once they fall off, then they’re OUT!”

Yes, thank you.  

That’s a big help, Ms. Technical.
