Speed Racer!

While I've been at work this week, Will and Mike have been having "Daddy and Will's Week of Fun" which has included mastering the two-wheel bike!  This is a HUGE accomplishment for Will.  Last summer he wasn't even really riding with training wheels until he got a new bike right before his birthday.  He has done really well with the new bike, but didn't want to try it without training wheels.  A friend gave us a great tip-it is hard for some kids to master pedaling, steering and balancing all the same time so if you take the pedals off and let them coast with the bike they can master the balancing and steering without the pedaling.  This really worked for Will!  We started by taking the pedals his old bike until he got comfortable coasting.  Mike put the pedals back on yesterday and by today he was riding like a pro!  I can't believe how big he is getting!!
