A Childhood Rite of Passage - not yet

We told Clark that after Canada we would be taking the training wheels off of his bike. He said it was fine, but I knew that it was going to be a bigger ordeal when the day actually came. Keep your hands on the handlebars, keep pedaling and look straight ahead.

Keep your hands on the handlebars!! Keep pedaling!! Clark kept grabbing on to Jason when he felt like he was going to fall off. And the feet were definitely not moving.

Kent was there to help every step of the way.

After Clark's handful of major meltdowns and a few frustrating episodes from Jason, they are going to try a different approach. Clark will now teach himself how to ride a two wheeler - and he's not doing too bad. But he still hasn't earned his wheels. We'll let you know when he does.
