I love that when it comes to anything practical my kids take after their father, I have always been better at the academic side of things. So having recently got myself a car, we had enough room between two cars to fit in 3 bikes, a scooter and all of the kids. With this in mind we decided to take the children out during the week (once the wind had died down), for them to practice their bike riding skills.
The above photo is of my eight year old. Having only been on a bike without stabilisers once before, she was doing a fantastic job of pedalling round on a somewhat uneven surface. And what was even better, when she did happen to fall off, she hopped straight back on again. Unlike her mum who was sworn off bicycles when she happened to go over the handle bars one day.
Makes me proud to see my kids so determined to succeed in all that they do and not being put off by any mistakes or accidents. You can see in the distance my six year old trying her hardest to do the same with the help of stabilisers, she very much wants to be like her older sister's but hasn't quite gained the confidence to take off those extra wheels just yet.
Yet another first being ticked off, it's surprising sometimes just how many of these sorts of moments we have to enjoy with our kids, wondering what the next thing will be?
