The Training Wheels Are Off!

About a month ago my 6 year old son was riding his bike with training wheels.  One day he walked in the house and said "Mom, I am taking off my training wheels; I am ready to ride my bike without them".  Amazingly, he got a wrench and took the training wheels off himself.  Next thing I knew he was riding without me holding on.  Within a week, he had perfected his balance and was able to stop the bike without falling down.  It is one of the most joyful experiences to watch a child learn something new.  He amazes me on a daily basis.  His next big goal is to learn to read and it appears he is well on his way.   I don't think there is a greater joy than raising a child.
