Spring break brought something new and fun for both girls. Riding a bike! On the same day even.
At 12 Mary Grace finally decided to learn how to ride a bike. Santa brought her one for Christmas when she was 5 or 6 but when it went back down with her to her dad's, they never worked with it. My neighbor couldn't believe she didn't know how to ride at 12, so she pulled on of her boy's bikes out.
It only took 5 minutes and she had it. I was proud of her but she was SO proud of herself. She's never mentioned it, but it was definitely something that bothered her. She beamed for several days after and just could not stay off those 2 wheels!
That same day I got a hand-me-down bike out of the basement, from a girlfriend, and Abi climbed on like it was no big deal at all. Within minutes she was cruising around. In just a day or so it was pretty much mastered. It's so much fun seeing all 3 kids zooming around and laughing.
