So a couple weeks ago, Silas decided to join the ranks of official bike riders in our family by putting away his training wheels. He was a natural. Check him out here:
And here's his interview with the press following his triumph:
Oliver was a little less excited about the whole no-training-wheels thing. It took him a while to warm up to the idea. Then yesterday, he decided he was ready and after spending a few minutes outside with Jared, he came bursting in the house to tell me he could do it and demanded an "Eyre Fire" on the spot (our family cheer that we got from the family I grew up in). I went out and watched him and he did great! He insisted that we all do the Eyre Fire cheer several times while watching him ride his bike. Somehow, it didn't occur to me to record his first bike ride. What kind of mom am I? But it looked pretty much exactly the same as Silas's first bike ride so if you saw that video, you're all good.
Oh these little guys are so much fun!
