Freedom from Training Wheels

Mandy FINALLY decided that she was ready to get rid of her training wheels.  I’m pretty positive she could have done this a long time ago, but she was scared to do it, so we just let her keep them on as long as she wanted.

With a little help from Daddy,


and a few rocky starts,


she mastered it!


Now she can zoom down the sidewalk with the best of them!

The kids have recently become very good friends with several other kids in the neighborhood.  They spend every afternoon out playing with their friends and they play HARD.  So hard in fact that one day I called them all in because it was getting dark and Layton was the last in.  He got so far as removing one velcro strap on his shoe and promptly lay down on the floor and went to sleep.  Now that is TIRED!
