Isaac has decided he is ready to ride without training wheels. I think it has to do with the fact that I may have told him he couldn't have a scooter until he could ride his bike without training wheels. So Greg took the training wheels off and spent some time out with him. After about 20 mins of working with his dad, Isaac decided he wanted to practice by himself. He didn't do to bad.
We had him practicing next to the grass so that when he fell he had more of a soft landing.
There was a lot of this
After about 15 mins of solo practicing, he decided he wanted them back on!
We're really proud of him and told him that he can practice without them again.
In other news:
Greg signed the boys up for a swim class! After Gary's new found love of swimming, and his fearless attitude when it comes to water, we figured a swim class was in order.
It's not a very big class, only about 6 kids. and they get to stand on these platforms in the big pool which is constantly supervised by a lifeguard. Isaac LOVES it!! Gary has fun, but he is, and always has been, an observer. All through class he stands there watching everyone else and then comes home and does it all in the tub. He will hold his breath in the water and blow bubbles and kick his feet...all in the comfort of his tub, we're trying to get him to do it in class.
In class they do stuff like splash around, blow bubbles in the water, dip their ears, bounce on their bottoms. They even have a bucket of toys they get to play with. It's really cute to watch all the little kids, basically take a bath together!
While the other kids are playin with the toys, the instructor will take them out one at a time to work on kicking and basic swim skills.
Gary .... not kicking
Gary on his back
