Hanging out in the yard the other day, I spied C making skidmarks on our driveway with her Radio Flyer bicycle.
You remember how this works. Pedal as fast as you can, get the bike going at a good clip, jam on the foot brake and slide the rear wheel out to the side. Then step back and view your skidmark with pride.
I didn't teach her this. She either saw some other kids doing it, or figured it out herself.
Skid marks usually lead to burnouts, which are not all that easy to do on a bicycle. I'm confident she'll figure those out as well.
Color me proud.
