Alright. That must sound like the worst excuse ever, right up there with the dog ate my homework.
I took the boys out today for a bike ride. As of yesterday morning, both boys were still with training wheels. I took Matthew to the park yesterday, took of the training wheels, sent him down a small grassy hill and voila! I have a 2 wheeler rider! He still has trouble if he is leaning to the left. His left foot is not strong enough to balance a fall. But he is learning to fall to his right. The training wheels will never go back on that bike again.
Ryan really really wanted to try today so we went to the park, took off his training wheels, sent him down a grassy hill and voila! I have another without training wheels! He is still very wobbly and when riding on the path can only go about 50-60 feet before riding into the grass and jumping off. But it won't be long. Give it a few days.
Matthew was so proud of his brother he cheered, clapped and gave him a high five. So sweet!
So I took video with my camera of both boys. Planned to send it to Grandma and Grandpa when I smelled that horrid electric fire smell and noticed smoke coming from my camera! I popped open the battery compartment and dropped the batteries. One was melted and the contact inside the camera doesn't look good.
So the memory stick should be safe, but I have no other way to use it at the moment. Ok, that is a lie. I am sure my computer could do it some how and I KNOW my printer has a memory stick port, but I am not sure how to do it.
Maybe I will attempt new batteries in my camera tomorrow. Will have to share the video soon!
Yay to my bike riders!
