Today was a momentous day for Sam - we took off his training wheels, and within 15 minutes, he was riding on his own. Brian got his exercise chasing after him, while Sam kept glancing back, laughing, and pedaling as hard as he could to get away. As you can see, we had him fully decked out in helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads. He stops at nothing. Both Caleb and Noah were jerked out of the way on several occasions just in time for Sam to whiz past. And I don't think he left a dent in the neighbors garage door.
Next up - he was promised a scooter when he learned to ride his bike. We thought we'd have awhile yet, but apparently not.
