So Joel decided today that he would finally ride his bike without the training wheels (the training wheels he had us take off last summer, but then decided he didn't really want to ride his bike). He only needed Brian to hold onto him a couple of times before he just took off and rode like a pro. The boy is doing awesome. He can even get himself started without having to push off from the ground, and is riding in circles and turning around and everything. He's very proud of himself.
