Bike riding

When he was three and a half, Asher asked to have his training wheels taken off. And he gave it a shot.

Although it was a tough go, mostly because he is like his dad in that he has to pay attention to everything that is going on around him, which results in a boy who is riding down an empty alleyway with his head whipping back and forth as his bike zigs this way and zags that way with a father shouting "Look forward! Look where you're going" just prior to him slamming on his breaks so his bike slides to the right like he is driving the General Lee just prior to approaching a bridge that they wouldn't be able to jump to come to a sudden stop.

For three days, he rode sans training wheels. Then, because he wanted to go "super fast" the wheels went back on.
