I've thought for a while that Helen could probably ride her bike without training wheels - but she had no interest in performing such a feat. But a couple of weeks ago - BAM! off went the training wheels and though she certainly doesn't have the necessary confidence yet, she's getting pretty good at riding in a straight line. Although I claim credit for Connor learning to ride a bike, Ed did most of the running alongside Helen. She still prefers the trail-a-bike for long trips, but hopefully by the end of summer she'll be able to power herself to the ice cream store!
Connor would like everyone to know that he can still ride his bike as well.
