Andrew's Blue Bicycle
But getting back into a school routine seems to have helped a bit, so we went ahead and surprised him with a shiny new bike last weekend!
To say he was excited would be an understatement!
He was so fearless - hopping right on and peddling like he totally knew what he was doing.
He took a little direction from Brian, but he really figured it out on his own and has only fallen a few times. He's mostly been riding around in our driveway, which has the smallest of inclines. As long as he can use a space in the garage to get some momentum he can get right up that mini hill.
But sometimes he gets stuck and gets really frustrated. We're working on problem solving and calmly asking for help. :)
We also talked about what some of our bike riding rules should be, and he came up with:
-not running over his sister or the dog
-staying on the sidewalk and not going into the street
-always wearing his helmet
Not bad...I felt a little better about the whole thing when he started off with don't run over my sister.
And I think we've finally found something that is going to wear him out! It's a lot of work to peddle around for hours!
I'm a proud mama!
PS. Brian picked out the bike and crazy robot dragon helmet on his own, and I think he did an awesome job! Andrew keeps making up stories about robot dragons - I think that means he likes it! Ha!
