"I want my training wheels off."
I mentioned the other day that she had said this.
Eric and I imagined that it would go something like, 'run run run after Maddie, let go, and there she goes'.
Because we know her.
This morning she made it clear that it was time to get to business.
"I'm right behind you!" I hollered, grabbing my camera.
So we get to the church parking lot (lots of smoothe, wide-open space), and after a talk of "nothing to be embarrassed about, all kids go through this" with her Mama, she's ready.
Her dad gets behind her, "Kay, I'm here", and immediately after, "Okay, I'm gonna let go!"
And that was it.
It was over.
Maddie rides a bike.
