We Have Bike Riders!

We are a little behind on our bicycle skills around here…I blame it on being in Scotland, with little storage space and terrible sidewalks…but I know it’s mostly that we just didn’t ride bikes!  We are rectifying that now.  Rebekah got a HUGE bike with no training wheels last summer for her birthday from Josh’s parents and Luke just got a bike with training wheels last week for his birthday.  They have been begging to practice, which is trickier than you might imagine.  I pretty much need Josh since Lizzie is full-throttle and anything is possible, including running in front of a bike…or even worse, darting down the sidewalk and around the corner out of sight.  Or this…little thief.

Sigh.  So, Josh runs with Rebekah as she learns and not that surprisingly, I still have to help Luke {and run with Lizzie on my hip, of course, while she giggles wildly} as he learns to work the pedals and steer at the same time.  Both are doing so well, though!!  Rebekah in particular is riding on her own!  She just needs to be able to get on it herself and build her confidence for longer rides.

    Very fun to see Rebekah ride by herself this evening – she did great! Luke did very well on his new bike too! Emily did a great job of holding Lizzie and photographing at the same time!! I’m glad I got to see them have such a great ride!

    Can’t wait to see them in action! Great way to burn off some energy.
