We reached a milesone folks!!

Ethan can ride a bike without training wheels!! Now... it only took going over to Papa's for him to build up enough confidence but whatever works.  We bought him a bigger bike a few weeks ago that didn't come with training wheels.  We finally put our foot down.  He is 6 and 3/4 (according to Ethan) and he needs to know how to ride a bike.  Right?? I mean, we had to know how to ride a bike when we were little so it must be one of those unspoken parenting rules.  I see little kids that are easily 2 or 3 riding with their parents without training wheels all over our neighborhood.  So I figured, he can do it too. 
We had worked with him one afternoon and he did really well but was still pretty nervous.  Yesterday - Monday's with Papa- turned out to be very beneficial for him.  Who knew that the presence of Papa near him would make him be able to ride his bike without any issues.  He literally got on his bike and took off with Papa running beside him.  He still has to learn how to stop (which seems like a very important thing to know) and continue to build confidence but he is on his way to being a big boy bike rider!  We are so proud of him!!
