Buh-bye training wheels

Whoever coined the phrase ‘as easy as riding a bike’ wasn’t watching a 5-year old learn to balance on 2 wheels.

Naomi made some huge progress recently.  She can pedal and stay balanced as long as someone helps start her off.  She has also mastered braking which seems to work out better than leaping off mid-ride.

By golly, I think she’s got it:

Proof that learning is hard:

So the word around here is that those ‘baby’ wheels are NOT going back on her bike.  I have a feeling she’ll be an expert in no time.

♥ Sparks ♥

026

Time for Sparks to start again – yippee!  Naomi joined a new, more active troupe this year – they have 26 girls.  Several of the girls go to her school too so she already has friends in this group.  I think she is in for lots of fun.

Check out all those badges …

Last weekend we decided to try the Viking – it’s kind of a bobsled ride that is attached to a rail like a roller coaster but you control the speed.   As you can see we all had a blast!

Again! Again!
