Noah's New Bike

Noah's never had any interest in riding a bike. No matter what Chad did or said to get him to ride, he wouldn't do it. He wanted nothing to do with a bike. So, it was surprising that this summer Noah decided that he wanted a bike. We took him to the store and let him pick out the one he wanted (secretly hoping that that would make him want to follow through with it) Noah came home and went straight out to learn to ride it. I don't know if I've ever seen him more determined to do anything in his life. He was going to learn to ride that two-wheeler! With very little help, and I mean very little help, he was off and going. Now he's all over the neighborhood with it. You'd never know he just learned to ride less than a month ago. This is yet another example to me, that Noah will do things in his own time and when he does, he will do it magnificently.
