On learning something new

learning to ride a bike

This was our project yesterday.


Problem is, he's very attached to this bike, the balance bike that was supposed to make the transition to big-boy bike painless and training-wheel-free. (I know it's worked for many others.) So far, it hasn't worked for us.

too big for this bike

Just getting CJ to try his new big-boy bike (yes, it's a hand-me-down from his sisters) took a lot of creative effort on the part of the other kids. Here was one attempt by Albus: look, how fast you'll be able to go!


CJ's response. But we coaxed him on. He's now working the pedals, but isn't keen on us letting go. It's a slow process.


And he loves this old balance bike ... Gotta admit, it looks pretty cool.
