Chiara informed her father tonight that he had to take her training wheels off...so he did! To our amazement and surprise she just rode! Yes, a few bumps-the backyard only allows so much space and plenty of turning practice-but she was fantastic! So proud of herself!!!! I can remember my parents teaching me to ride without training wheels (though I seemed older than Chiara is now...just shy of 6 years old) so I know this is a memory she will keep with her!
