Gabby and Michelle and the Two Wheeled Bike

Gabby got a bike with training wheels a few months ago...can't remember exactly when.  But a month ago, she decided she was ready to learn to ride it without training wheels.  So Michelle used Alfredo's tools (and got a tiny bit of help from Alfredo ...but very little) and took off Gabby's training wheels.  Then Michelle spent about 15 minutes helping Gabby figure out how to balance and pedal and so on.  Then she was riding her bike.  It took a bit more practice to be able to turn without stopping and getting off to turn her bike around, but she was soon soaring up and down the street.  Proud of Gabby for learning...and Michelle for being such a good helper/teacher to her sister.
