Huge milestone – riding a bicycle without training wheels

We have been talking about this for a while and were planning on sending Ella to a place that gives private lessons, but today was a beautiful day outside and we decided to take the training wheels off Ella’s bicycle and see what happened.  Ella was incredible.  We were hardly holding her in the beginning and after about 10 minutes, she was off to the races all by herself.  I think it was exciting and scary for Ella and she did such a great job.  The video shows Ella about 30 minutes into taking the plunge.  Now we’re going to get some great exercise running along side of Ella!

    Amazing! See if you can raise the handlebars and the seat… Otherwise grandma and papa will have to spring for a bigger bike! Love you. Mom

    Ella, you did a spectacular job learning to ride your bike in such a short time.

    Love, Papa
