Two Wheelin'

Noah is just full of accomplishments this week. He's been wanting to ride his bike without training wheels for some time but just didn't have the courage to do it. He would even have them off but just wouldn't let Daddy let go of him when he rode. Maybe it was because he finally got brave enough to swim under water or maybe he's just growing up, but today he took a leap. He rode his bike without training wheels!! And he did it like a pro. I was so proud of him. When he got off of his bike, I just scooped him up and hugged him tight. Still caught up in the excitement, he even went over to the playground and did the monkey bars all by himself, without anyone standing by in case he fell. I'm so proud of his accomplishments this past week but even more than that, I'm so proud of him for facing the things that scare him......and coming out of them with confidence and a smile. That is a lesson I could definitely learn from him.
