I can't believe my eyes!

Meredith made lots of progress with her two-wheeler over the weekend at camping. Every weekend we practice riding without the training wheels, which generally involves either Dave or I running behind her, proving just how out of shape we are by how quickly we get winded!

This weekend she continued her practice. Up until now we could only let go for a second or two before she lost her balance. On Saturday, Auntie Kim helped her practice a little and taught us a new way to keep her safe without helping her so much. The secret seemed to be to stand on one side of her and hold her upper arm, not stand behind her and stabilize her from side to side. Within minutes she was biking 4 or 5 feet on her own before tipping and needing some help. By Sunday it was 12 or 15 feet. And tonight, she biked up and down our street like she'd been riding a two-wheeler for months!

Pure glee!
