Well, we got home and he walked right over to his bike and asked me to take off the training wheels. We did and he was ready to go. With a little help starting, he was off! He did great and absolutely loved the freedom. Mr. No-Fear was full speed zooming around the neighborhood. Axel still needs some help starting but he figured out how to stop in the grass. We are so proud of him.
|Train wheels off and he was ready. No hesitation at all.|
|And there he goes...|
|Axel can ride without training wheels. He just squeals with delight going around the circle. He's quick too, we can barely keep up with him on foot.|
|He learned to stop in the grass.|
|Proud boy. We were proud too!|
He had a blast and did not want to go home. I was so happy to see him handle being gone from me for 5 hours. Yep, I too handled it but I have to admit it was weird being at the house by myself that long. I was able to get so much done! :) I now have 10 hours a week of just Mommy time...oh what to do? what to do?...
|Axel started 3 year old preschool this week and LOVED IT!|
|He has such a big personality.|
|Mr. Goofy. :)|
|Mr. Brown Eyes.|
|This big boy was ready for school!|
|Getting lunch box ready to go home.|
|Discovering that it was time to go. "Stay here! Stay here!" was all I heard for about 5 minutes.|
|Ice cream celebration. It was also the only way I got him to leave preschool. He wanted to stay and was a little disappointed I was already there to take him back home. It made his new teachers smile. It was a great sign that he loves his new school.|
