Riding High!

Austin's Trail-a-bike finally came in and it was worth the wait. I think it will be great therapy for him with balance, stretching, and strengthening. And best of all he loved it! Tommy I think was the most happy for him which was really nice because sometimes they just don't get along the best. I'm thankful that we got that nice seat back that gave him more support because there's no way he could have stayed on a regular seat. However I think he will be able to eventually. In fact the improvement from him in just 2 days has been nothing short of remarkable. He was so wobbly and couldn't barely get his feet on the pedals to yesterday he was sitting much more stable and was even able to get his pedals around occasionally. He'll only get better.

Here is a short video of his first ride around the driveway.

That is AWESOME, Austin! WOW! Have tons of fun on your new bike, buddy! You look great! :)

We are looking at getting Sammy a tandem bike with a chair in the front for him for our bike trail by the lake in our neighboring town. So glad Austin is having fun with his! :)

Wow, that looks like so much fun! We just got Malayna an adaptive trike but she can't manage to pedal it yet and it's a little bit too big for her. Hopefully with time it will come together for her. Austin looks great!

Kiera Beth - He does very well with the back seat and thankfully it does hold him up. Joe is strong too which is also a good thing. I've rode with him a couple times and it's hard, doable but hard.
