Go Brendan Go!


About 10 days ago, David took the training wheels off of Brendan's bike. And then without any instruction, off he went. Within minutes, he was circling this parking lot like a pro.

It is as though he just knew how to ride (for this, we credit the Strider PreBike that he has been tooling around on for the past few weeks). Brendan was ready. He was just patiently waiting for us to get around to taking off those training wheels.

In related news, while we were visiting Grandma and Grandpa a few weeks ago, I took his swim vest off -- intending to give him a little lesson. Without any intervention on my part, he basically swam the width of the pool by himself.

Kids can really surprise you sometimes.
