No More Training Wheels!!! :-)

Yesterday, Ashleigh decided that it was time to take her training wheels off. We tried it once before but she was so nervous and unsteady that we put them back on, but raised them up so she wouldn't be so dependent on them. It worked...we've noticed that she had not been using them much--she was balancing while riding just fine. Nick took off her training wheels and off she went. No hesitations or worries! I was VERY impressed and it was once again one of those swelled-heart mommy moments. My little girl is growing up so fast! I am so proud of her! I took a couple pictures of this momentous event and a little video too...enjoy!

(Preston is chasing after her...he wants to be big too!)

She's so good, too! She brought her bike over to show us on Saturday and I was amazed that the training wheels had come off that day. She was riding like a pro! Great job, Ash!

Good job Ashleigh!! She looks like she's having so much fun with her newfound "freedom!"
