Lose the Training Wheels

Last week Nash completed a week of Lose the Training Wheels bike camp. He did so well! He is off training wheels (we were using the Fat Wheels which are great but not good to transition to two wheels). He is not 100% riding on his own, but is so much more confident. We use the handle on his two wheel bike and he is riding for about 20 feet at a time by himself. Whoo hoo! Next summer he will be 8 years old and I bet he is riding solo...we shall see!

And we got to see Kerri and Merry and family there too who traveled all the way from Canada!

Here are some pics. I highly recommend this camp! Thank you to all the volunteers, Easter Seals and Rainbows End for sponsoring.
