The "Two Wheeler"

Jacob finally graduated from training wheels. At only 7 1/2 years old, he finally got sick of them and decided to teach himself to ride a two wheeler. He started teaching himself at his cousins, the Bradbury's house. Then he showed me that he could ride cousin Charity's bike at Grandpa's ranch yesterday. So today we took the training wheels off of his bike to see if he could do it. (His bike is a bigger bike than the others he had been riding.) Sure enough, off he went! So he is excited to take his own bike to Grandpa's ranch. We just have to keep him away from loose gravel and the barbed wire fence. No good can come of that...Just ask Katie!

Way to go Jacob! We're so proud of you!
