Isaiah's Milestone!

Isaiah had a big day Saturday! Every spring and summer since he was about 4 we have tried teaching him to ride a bike (without training wheels). Every year it would end in tears and frustration. We knew he would get it eventually. We walked the fine line between pushing and encouraging him and allowing him to give up. So this year I knew it was the year. He really wanted to learn this year, and it was his choice to try again. After about an 45 min of trial, instruction, falling down, a few tears, HE DID IT! I can't tell you how awesome it was to see him just go, on his own. Isaiah learned a valuable lesson about persistence! Now I am sure Elijah will not be far behind.
