goodbye training wheels

Last Thursday, Sarah decided that she wanted to try riding her bike, without training wheels. Not only did she try, but she rode, and rode, and rode some more. There was no stopping her. She fell a few times, but she got up immediately, gave me a grin, and then took off again. I kept having to remind her to wait for Eric and me. It all came together in this beautiful moment - she was ready, she had no fear. If you want to feel nostalgic about childhood and its fleeting nature, check out one of my favorites. I get choked up every time I watch it. And now (sigh), we've passed another milestone . . .
