This year Santa brought both kids bikes for Christmas. For the most part all has gone well. Elijah has taken to gear shifting like a champ and Emily is loving pedaling.
We love the caption on the back of Emily's helmet.
These gloves really saved Elijah's hands on Christmas day when Emily ran out in front of him and he turned sharply to avoid hitting her causing himself to crash instead. Thankfully he was OK just a little shaken up more from the fear of "squishing his sister" then from the fall itself. He would have torn up his hands without them though.
He's also quite good at riding across the bridge now.
Emily's not so good at steering yet.
Neither of them could wait even a few minutes to try out the new bikes.
