The rains are gone, and C took to his bike like a fish to water. Sure there were a couple of crashes, but all minor and he was anxious to get right back up there and try again.
I don't really know why it waited until he was 8... I think that's getting on the older end of the learn-to-ride-a-bike spectrum, but then again, who cares when he learns? He's learned it now, and he's doing fantastically.
