He's getting there

Eli has been working on riding his bike sans training wheels for a while now. It's one of those, work on it for 20 minutes give up for a couple of months kind of working ons.

Well, we've recently started a behavior reward project with the kids that involves gaining / loosing marbles. When you fill up your jar you get a big reward. Not exactly sure what we're going to give, at the rate they are going we've got some time.

Anyway, out latest attempt to entice, OK bribe, Eli to work on riding his bike was to offer 10 marbles once he can ride from the top of the cul-de-sac to our driveway and back without stopping. So, today he strapped on his helmet and started working on it. Thirty minutes later I shot this video.

He's not there yet but he's getting closer.
