It was last summer that my daughter, Emrie, tried to ride her bike without training wheels. It was short lived as she was far too scared to "take off" on her own.
Well, tonight was a different story. We practiced for about 15 minutes behind the house and then it was off for a family bikeride! She did great if you overlook the two times she wiped out and the one time she hit a parked car:) It was awesome and she feels like she has accomplished something...and she has.
My girl is growing up.
