A big evening here at the Six household: Elena learned to ride her bike without training wheels today. Our fearless girl, who will ride any roller coaster, jump from any height, tackle any monkey bars, was diametrically opposed to learning how to ride her bike without training wheels. We'd bring it up every once in awhile and she'd let us know she wasn't having it. Then out of the blue she decided she was ready, and after a few sessions with Mike holding on she was on her own. I love the juxtaposition of Mike's shirt next to the monumental event unfolding before his very eyes. As an added touch, Eli has been a clapping fool this week. He found bike-riding to be extremely clap-worthy from the sidelines. I should also mention that Elena mastered tying her laces this week, too. Yup, it's been a big week here.
