Nathan was fairly happy to try, so he hopped and Brian held on for a bit.
|Off they go!|
|Will was being a great cheerleader|
As soon as Brian let go, Nath promptly fell off his bike. Nothing was hurt, but he refused to get back on his back. And by refused, I mean screaming, crying, and telling Brian how mad he was at him. We quickly decided if we let him quit he would never try again. So we tried several different options. First we tried cajoling - didn't work. Then we took the tactic of "we believe in you and wish you believed in yourself." No dice. Then we went to the, and I'm not particularly proud of this, don't be a baby - look at Will trying. Nope. Then Brian went back to the I believe in you spiel and I took Wills out so he could scooter around so Brian could try to talk him down.
