Today Jack achieved a big milestone - riding a bike by himself!
One of my summer goals was to get Jack riding a bike like a proper first grader. We worked on it most days. I realized his bike we got for his 5th birthday is just too big for him to handle. I got a glider from craigslist to teach him to coast, then a medium sized bike also from craigslist as a step in between. Now we have a ridiculous pile of bikes in the garage, but I know Sam will use them all too it's justified!
Jack overcame a lot of fears for this. He was poorly motivated to learn, but tonight we couldn't get him off it. He finally got that awesome sense of speed and freedom that a kid feels on a bike.
