Training Wheels Off

We recently bumped into old friends who has two children  of our kids' age.  They were riding their bikes without training wheels.  It encouraged our Burritos to try riding their bikes without the training wheels.  Our son was the first one that showed courage then  daughter followed.
We started at the driveway then we brought them at the field.  Mr. Burrito   got it quickly but Ms. Burrito's  cautiousness got in the way.  She was scared  to do it in her bike so she used her brother's.
Her competitiveness   overshadowed the fear so she tried and got it eventually.
She only want to do it in the grass so if she falls, she would get  hurt but with our encouragement, she   tried it at the concrete.
Hubby took a picture of me while sitting on the grass watching the kids.  I was so sore after the exercise I did at our basement.  But as they say "No pain, no glory"  so I am keeping my goal of working out.
She finally realized that it is easier to   ride  in the concrete because it isn't bumpy but she is right  about getting hurt when you fall in the  cemented one.  Parent's support, encouragement, and involvement is very vital to boost the morale and self confidence of  the children.
