I am happy to report that I can take back what I said about helping kids learn to ride a bike being in the same category as potty training and phonics. Brynna and Hailey both took off this week. Hailey doesn't need me at all. Brynna, who is our most un-athletic child (is un-athletic a word?), rides just fine. She's still working on the taking off part. And the stopping part still needs some work too, especially when a curb is coming up. She scored our first major crash of the summer this morning by playing chicken with the sidewalk curb. The curb won.
