September 1, 2007

So this post is a little late but we had a very cool thing happen this weekend while camping in NH. My baby rode his bike without his training wheels. And without any practice....well except for the practice with the training wheels. Gregg said want to try without the training wheels before Daddy puts them on today? And Grady said "Sure!" In his everyday kind of voice. So Gregg and the kids took him up to the field at the campground we were staying at. And in less then 5 minutes Gail and Grant came bombing back yelling "Mommy! Mommy! Grady is riding without his training wheels!" "Daddy said to get the camera and come quick!" And so like every good scrapper and MOM, I grabbed my camera, jumped on my Mary Poppins Bike and off I went. Below is a shot we got of him just tooling around as if he had been doing it like that for years. What a cool kid he is. Gregg and I kept looking at eachother all weekend say...."did that just happen?" Hey you have to check out the September Contest at Scrapbooker. It is all about Cardstock this month. So, there are no excuses to not enter. Everyone has some so go on and use it. It could be worth a $25.00 gift certificate to the SBO store.


  1. Wow, you go, Grady!! I'm hoping it will be that easy for Ian.

  2. Yay for Grady! Andrew did the very same thing except his training wheels fell off (snort!) w/in 10 minutes of each other. He's only had his bike for a little over a year but he rides better than Elizabeth. She's still riding w/one training wheel.
