Learning to ride a bike
At the end of winter, Hope got a new bike as part of her 20th work anniversary gift from GE. When Kasey saw the bike, she asked if she could bring over her bike from her Dad's house. That then sparked the idea of Kasey learning how to ride her bike without training wheels!
The first lesson was in the basement as there was still snow and ice on the ground. Luckily the basement is good size and she was able to take a few passes to get her grounded on the concept. All was well until she tried on her own and put her front wheel through the sheet rock. :-) We then drove to a parking lot so that we didn't have too many holes in the walls. After a few falls and getting back on, she got the hang of it and was riding on her own. We had a great spring and summer with all of us riding our bikes around the neighborhood! The hills were not very friendly some times but we all enjoyed watching Kasey getting more and more skilled.
Earlier that same year, Kristin begged for a unicyle. With her gymnast balance and stubborn personality, she got better and better on riding it. She still needs practice but she had a blast learning!
