Meg has been wobbling about without training wheels for a while now but never quite getting the hang of the smooth ride.
A 5 minute bike ride with the friends who came to stay where she saw her friend N cruising along with the wind in her hair and she suddenly got what she was aiming at.
An hour later she was easy riding.
And I'm ecstatic. I love riding and have really been suffering through the too-big-for-a-child-seat-too-small-to-ride-alone years.
The end is in sight though and this evening all four of us headed off on our bikes for a ride across the mountain. Amy is still using training wheels but one parent has to monitor each child for safety reasons, right? And so I put my hand up to watch Meg who went from training wheel to Evil Knevil in one short afternoon and we flew along.
I don't know who had a bigger grin on her face...
