Nathan is reserved, cautious. A bit anxious. He was convinced he would fall if he pedaled. We tried several times, but he wasn't ready. I made this page a week and a half ago. I decided to name it Real Life Ride and document the reluctance.
We went on vacation and he showed his braver side. He went on water slides and amusement park rides. There was a shift. When we tried the bike again on Monday, he finally pedaled. And got it. He has now biked at least four times each day...can't get enough.
I used Allison Kreft's collections for this...mostly Composition & Color with some Sweet Notes. I fell in love with these papers again! Huge Allison Kreft fan!
That smile. I am so proud of him. It is weird to see your child riding a bike...it is a rite of passage. I love this braver side and can't wait to see more of it!
Maybe I need to change the title? or at least add in a few more sentences of journaling!
