Riding!

Squid has been riding his scooter since Grandma and Papa brought it over, and his balance has been getting better and better.

He’s been reluctant to transfer his skills over to a pedalled bike, but since his school now has a spiffy new bike track (and the gates are open on the weekends!), we decided to take the bike for a spin.

The bike was a Christmas present when he was 5, but it has hardly been ridden.  Mark took the pedals off a few months ago so that he could use it as a balance bike, but it’s been hard to convince him to try.

Today, we had another go.  And after 2 goes around without pedals, he was ready to try the pedals.

One thought on “Riding!”
