On April 21, an important event happened in our home. Jake learned to ride his bike without training wheels. If you ask him he says, “reout” we are not quite sure why he says reout or regot for forgot. Anyway, that is another post.
This started when he wanted to try and ride the neighbors bike who doesn’t have training wheels. Jim didn’t think he could do it. Jake jumped on and with a little help starting he was riding down the drive way into the cul-de-sac. After a few tries we decided to take the training wheels off of his bike and he has been going ever since. He is doing so well and we are so proud. Every time he falls he gets back up and keeps on riding. There have been quite a few scraps and bruises but he wants to keep on going. I am not positive but I think it has some thing to do with his competitive nature and the rest of the kids on the street ride without training wheels and do tricks.
