A New Thing

I don't see training wheels do you???


Not so much 'giving up' -- just enough for today.

The storm was coming Posted by Picasa

We decided it was time to try Tim without training wheels.....it was a trying afternoon for all of us. We are trying to teach Tim that it's ok if you're not great at everything - but it's not ok to just give up. Something hard for us all to learn....

i do remember that mom....i guess i am a little stubborn, huh? i also remember painting a picture at school about how i had learned to ride my bike (when i really hadn't) so then i figured i'd better hurry up and learn before i brought the picture home and you caught me lying.
i must have been an interesting child....one of them special ones :)

good job tim!!
alicia learned this past summer on canada day. she really wanted to do it before that but was having trouble and killing daddy's back! we were camping and had a HUGE grass section next to us so we thought we'd try there. sure enough it was actually easier for her! (so were the falls) i thought it would be harder, but in a couple tries she had it! and once they do, they're gone! try a field somewhere, just a suggestion for daddy's back! who knows, it might actually work!
