Two Tipsy Twins

HandH Yesterday, I was visited by twin six-year olds who were constantly in motion.  Even when standing still.  Hannah and Hunter were hilarious students as they learned to ride.  Asking a million questions or stating facts about everything or anything.

When kids come to learn to ride with me, the “classroom” chair is their bike seat.  They sit on it and I stand in front of them and share all my secrets/tips/tricks to riding with no training wheels.  These two would constantly be fidgeting (some need to move while they absorb information).  And, they’d tip over (often into each other) making levity the constant for our lesson.

Of course whenever there are two students, there is sibling rivalry.  I use a 0-100 scale to let the students know how close they are to “graduating” from my class.  Typically, students start hearing numbers from me after they cross 90.  In this case, that’s where the fun continued.  Each twin had to be higher then the other.  Fortunately, both had different strengths (and weaknesses), so we could brag on each them differently.  But still, both had to get to 100 first.  Basically, it was a tie–they both learned to ride at almost the same time.

Like with all students, they’ll need to practice.  But they advanced very far, very fast.  And two sets of training wheels can be put away for good.  Congrats H & H!
