It took a bit of time for her to get her sea legs. I'm telling you, she's not overly apt. But eventually the little magic switch went off (it was more of a fade on light, than a contrasted off/on) and somehow she did it. She is still super wobbly on two wheels, but she has officially graduated. We were all so proud of her: Mom, Dad, and Brother. Congratulations, Caiden. You did it. 5 years old and no more training wheels! Woot!
I'm really proud of both of the kids for pushing their limits that day. Although we did save a few limits in front of us for another time. And I can't say I'm disappointed, either, that Elliott decided to wait on trying to drop into the quarter pipe/pool for the first time. I am SO GLAD I didn't have to watch him hurtling down an almost completely vertical drop to the bottom of a cement pool. Which, according to the warnings of his dad, has to be done just right to avoid eating the pavement. I don't think I can be there to watch that one. So scary!
This one was scary enough for a mom to watch, thank you very much!
