When Brooks was 2 1/2, the Easter Bunny brought him his first bike. He hopped on and took off like a pro. Last summer, I took the training weeks off that bike but he was too nervous to ride without them. I just didn’t get it and didn’t have much patience for what I knew he could do. Well, it was a lesson for me that he needs to do things when he’s ready to do them. This summer, after watching friend after friend speed along on a two wheeler, he decided he was ready. The wheels came off and he took off riding! Easy as that! He’s like an old pro again and I couldn’t be happier that it was done in his own time.
Here are a few captures of his big day!
