Two Wheels

One day we were out riding bikes and Abby met a little girl who lives down the street from us.  She had recently started riding her bike without training wheels and Abby decided right then and there she wanted to learn too.  Andrew took her training wheels off and about 15-20 min. later Abby was riding on two wheels!  She learned really quickly and has been obsessed with riding her bike since.

About 3 weeks after learning how to ride, Abby took a nasty spill which ended in a trip to the ER and 5 stitches in her chin.  On the way to the hospital I was trying to reassure Abby that everything would be ok and told her that she would probably not even need traditional stitches because they have this "really cool new glue stuff" that can be used instead.  Well, the minute they looked at her chin we were informed that there was no way the glue would work and we were in for real stitches.  Abby did great though and was very brave and tough!!!

Here's a short video of her the day she learned to ride without training wheels!
