Backpedaling


A few days ago, I coerced all 3 kids to get out of the house and enjoy the semi-mild December weather. They needed some sunshine and fresh air and I wanted to get Caroline on her bike. She hesitated a little but when I told her she could warm up on her tricycle she agreed. So after getting her legs ready, she hopped on the new bike and rode it down the drive way and down the sidewalk past the neighbor's house. Then I turned her around and she rode back. I was VERY proud and she seems to be getting it. I think she just needs more time and experience on it and before we know it, she'll be ripping up and down the street and asking to remove her training wheels. But for now, I'm just happy she's stopped pretending to hate it!!
