Rockin' some new wheels

We've had so much going on these past few weeks that I only wish I had the time to blog about everything. But this event was just too big to pass up...Carter got a new bike on Saturday and has since taken to the streets! We have lots of kids on our block and they're all about bike-riding age, so Carter was starting to feel a little left out. He decided this weekend that he was ready for a big bike (we had been asking for most of the summer, but he never really seemed committed to the idea) He's as timid as ever, but I'm so proud of him for trying. He's not too keen on going fast but has mastered starting, stopping and turning, so he's well on his way! He has been out riding every day and has only taken a few minor spills - nothing that has kept him off for long. Kyle has been the best teacher and is very patient with him. Carter likes to have all the details and Kyle has been great at explaining everything. So far so good...

We got a helmet and protective pads earlier in the morning, and Carter was all ready to sport them. At least he looks the part?!?

A total poser

Testing it all out - thankfully we have a large driveway and garage, so there's lots of space to practice.

Doing it on his own!

Going up and down the street. He definitely likes the reassurance of having Kyle stand right there with him.

Of course Kennedy had to get in on the action, too. She's fearless and will be motoring around in no time. Thankfully Carter's old trike has a handy push handle, so it's great for now!
