Today Macy faced her fear and rode her bike without training wheels. I had to run behind her numerous times before she would try it on her own. We are so proud of her! She recently asked us for a new bike and I reminded her that she got a new bike last Christmas...so she asked her Daddy expecting to get a big YES! But he told her No unless she learned to ride without training wheels. SO, I think this was the factor which gave her the push she needed. Granny taught her to ride a bike when she was 3 and she has been riding like crazy ever since. Last year when she got her big girl bike we thought she would want to take the training wheels off but no way. David did lift one so that she would learn to balance it some on her own a few months ago. You will notice in some of the pictures she had to check her heels to make sure she didn't have a boo boo. She is still a little wobbly on the stopping.
