yesterday was a spectacularly beautiful day outside, so i thought it would be a nice time to try z biking without training wheels. j removed the wheels from z's bike and loaded it into the car, and all four of us went to pick z up from school. he was happy to see daddy coming to pick him up, and then s & me in the car, and even happier to hear we were going to the tiny park to go biking! he was pretty excited to try the bike without the training wheels, and above is a compact version of his evolution from training wheels to none. he is still wobbly, but it's a start, and boy - he is SO proud of himself!!!
