He started first grade, he lost his first tooth, and now Carter can ride a bike with out training wheels!!! He's so proud of himself! So are we.
He has been begging all.summer.long to have me take off the training wheels, but I kept delaying it because I wanted Bo to teach him. I strongly feel that that is something a dad should teach their kids. I don't know, it just seems like a fun memory he should have, you know... "my dad taught me to ride my bike." Anyways...
Bo finally got around to taking off his training wheels on Monday, and Carter just took off. He didn't need practice runs with dad behind him. Bo held him up, took a couple steps with him, all the while Carter protesting he didn't need Bo's help, so Bo let go. Sure enough, he didn't need the help. I don't know why we were surprised, my kids have always had excellent coordination and balance. My kids might not be the first to speak, or learn their ABC's, but they are always the first at jumping, running, and throwing. hhahaaa. It's true.
Our little Carter bug is growing up so fast. He needs to slow down so that Megs and Derrick can have a chance in the spotlight!
