We decided today was the day Emma needed to learn how to ride her bike. She got a new bicycle for Christmas and she hasn't been able to ride it because her mean parents have refused to put training wheels on it! I have practiced with Emma 2 times on our sidewalk outside of our house and decided that was about too much for my back AND I can't let go because I'm afraid she's going to wreck and get hurt. That's a good job for Dad. He's better at that than I am! We took Emma to the capitol grounds to get the job done as it has a slow incline that is just suited for riding a bike down, fast enough to keep your balance, but yet slow enough you don't get out of control. Plus, the added benefit of a softer landing on grass! This video I took is Emma's first time down the hill!!!!!!!!! I also discovered I am going to need some serious drugs to get me through future graduations and weddings because I nearly started crying during the video!!!!
