2 wheels......again

1. Birthday bike rack
2. Birthday bike plus 2 more
3. Beautiful beach front bike path

If you remember Ava learned how to ride a bike last August. It took a couple tries but she did it. We video taped it and I was super excited and proud.
True to my scatter brained mothering we have not been on a bike ALL THIS YEAR. I didn't have a bik but I have a dog and Olivia is a mad rider and just takes off when ever she likes. Ava went back to her 3 wheeler 360.
Well we decided to do it again. She struggled and I just kept running along side her. She cried, got mad and even growled a little. I was losing my patience and out of ideas for support as just walked along her. All of a sudden I look back and she is talking to herself. I remembered this is what she did last year. Like all of a sudden she gets her groove and believes she can do it. After getting a hang of it she says Mom, I just keep telling myself I think I can. I said well change that to I know I can because you can.
And she did.
See this face below. This was because she had it and lost it. I blamed the boots but she wouldn't hear it. Mom, I can do it.

And she did have it again. I even got a chance to ride my new bike along side her which I love. All hot pink and flowered 
The only reason we left was out of darkness and starvation but they wanted to go again tomorrow which I thought would be a good idea so she didn't lose her mojo. 
After walking the dog, running 3 miles and helping them clean their room but going up and down to the basement about a billion times I decided not to ride today. Instead Lilly and I walked while she ride along. We started in Weat Falmouth this time because it was cooler and windier than yesterday. 

She was doing great and we decided to turn around and head back. She was far ahead and had intact crossed a dose by herself when she crashed. Now I could add sprinting to my day as Lilly and I flew to reach her. 
Poor kid. I pushed her bike the last half mile while she limped her scraped up body back to the car but I think she didn't lose her confidence. I told her shit happens but she did great. We will let the knee heal and bundle up and do it again as long as it doesn't snow.
