Training Wheels

A quick photo essay of Ben's first ride on his new bike.

A careful helmet fitting. I was a sucker and bought the Bob the Builder version. I couldn't help it. The only non-branded version seemed so flimsy.

First we had to get his feet on the pedals.

Look! It almost looks like he's really pedaling! He just doesn't have the coordination yet. His feet just rested on the pedals while we pushed him. We'll work on it. Plenty of time. Such a dear little boy. And see? A helmet and knee pads. Contrary to the screen door adventure of Monday night, we do care about his safety. *smile*
