Ride Jax Ride!

Today was the first "warm" daywe've had in weeks. And by warm I mean it wasn't in the 20's or 30's. It was high 40's! Jax & I decided to take advantage of the "warmth" and sunshine and get some fresh air.

So out to the front we went to practice riding the tricycle he got from Santa last Christmas. As we were going outside, Brian says to me, "Let's see how good a teacher you really are! I haven't been able to get him to use the pedals yet." Well, those were fighting words! No one was going to tell me I couldn't teach my kid to pedal, I mean I can teach 20 plus kids each year to read, why can't I do this? To be honest, I was this cocky because I knew Jax was super close to using the pedals so I wasn't going to fail too badly!

I was right! He did it! He is finally able to use the pedals forward and go a significant distance, from our house to the end of the cul-de-sac. That's about 4 houses. Here's the video of the momentus event. Had to have proof so I could rub it in Brian's face :)

PS I love the shout outs he gave as he was riding! He wanted the whole world to see him!
