Last week the cub scouts did a class on bicycles and each kid was to bring their bikes and helmets.When the boys got home that evening Rob said that while he was on vacation that he wanted to buckle down and get Wyatt to learn to ride his bike.
Well the guys went up to the school and with hardly a blink Wyatt was riding around the basketball courts with no training wheels.
Rob is so proud of Wyatt and he said that he was in tears with how easy Wyatt just stayed on and stayed at riding.
There were a couple of spills but Wy took them in stride and kept going.
Now what about Kelly?
Kelly has been adamant for years that she didn't want to learn to ride so we really haven't pushed the issue.
I learned to ride by the time I was five and Rob said he didn't learn to ride until he was older than Kelly so we both have been lax.
But... with Kelly seeing how great Wyatt was doing she wanted to go up to the school and try again.
The next evening Rob took the kids back up and Kelly took to riding like a duck to water. I think that girl has been scamming us. Rob got it all on video and I got to see when they got home. The kids called the grandmas to give them the big news and then we went out to our street so that I could see and get some pictures.
Our next goal is to get them conditioned to ride a little bit longer distances and more comfortable on their bikes so that we can do family bike rides.
