August tried riding his bike without training wheels last fall, and in my opinion wasn't even close yet. I didn't think August would be able to do it, but my father-in-law wanted to try, so I let them give it a shot. Don't get me wrong, it is not that I don't have confidence or faith in my son's ability, I just didn't think he was ready for it. It didn't take long for me to be proven wrong. Within about 5 seconds of starting and only 20 feet of biking, August was riding solo.
