Proud of my big girl riding her bicycle!

I just wanted to share because I am proud of my daughter who learned to ride today!

See her HERE

She has been wanting to ride since last year and we just didn't know how to get started, since she's had training wheels for 2 years and we weren't moving forward. Then a friend gave us the tip to turn her bike into a balance bike by lowering the seat and taking the pedals off. So we did that in January and she has been learning how to glide along and balance, literally two months later she is riding her bike alone! Anyway, just hope that helps somebody whose kid is anxious to learn, we're about to do the same with our 3 year old's bike too.

I'm planning on doing this with my 8 year olds bike. We've tried everything else and he just can't seem to figure it out. I wish I'd known about balance bikes years ago!
