We took Athena's training wheels off yesterday and she practiced riding around our yard. Today we brought her bike to the park so she could practice more and she almost has it down! She crashed a lot, and got frustrated a few times, but I was surprised at her persistence. She feels so "big" now, I can just tell she is ready for this. She has a bigger bike too, but we thought it would be easier to learn on her old little one since she can reach the ground so easily. I think that really did the trick. Chris is so proud too, he was on his own bike ride today while I took the video, I'm sure she won't mind showing him in person her new tricks. She found out by accident that riding on the grass was easier, and as you can see, getting started is the hardest part!

The fact that she can start off on her own is almost as big as no training wheels!!!Congrats!
