Two Wheelin'

So one fine day last week I decided it was time to teach Cait to ride a two wheeler. We had lent our littlest bike to Chris and Lauren last year in exchange for their next size up bike. So we switched back and between general Conference sessions we ran out the front and tossed Caiter onto the bike. She pretty much rocked it!! She couldn't stop smiling and laughing and kept saying 'this is sooo fun'. So that's it - she's 3 1/2 and riding her two wheeler!! What a smart little girls!

I feel like I can claim that my method of learning to bike is the best. I start my kids out on a tricycle until they can pedal that properly. Once they're pedaling like pros I switch them over the a balance bike (around 2 1/2 years old). Then they ride that until I feel like they are getting some good cruising in...and then we break out the legit two wheeler. Since they have experience pedaling and balancing it's such an easy transition! Yay for never buying training wheels!!
