I Can Do All Things…Including The Unicycle

I Can Do All Things…Including The Unicycle

I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

It all started in kindergarten when I saw the unicycle team. I thought, cool, I’m going to do that. When I became a third grader I got to fill out a form and ride a unicycle. A couple of weeks later, I was excited to open a letter and find out I was going to be a Fairview Flyer.

I went to my first unicycle practice excited, but nervous because I had never done it before. The coach lined us all up by size and gave us a unicycle. We each got a partner or two. I saw someone ride a couple pedals and I thought, well, it’s my turn. I started loosening my grip on the person’s shoulder and then brrring! The bell interrupted and I had to go to class.

Over the weekend, I was glued to the unicycle seat. The cars were parked in the driveway and I would ride around them to hold on. Every ten seconds I would crash and fall, but I got right back up. By the end of the weekend I was able to ride. I never gave up.

Try hard and don’t give up if you want to do something new. Pray. God will help.

My name is Carissa. I am ten years old and I am a fifth grader on the Fairview Flyers team. We travel to different schools and universities to perform.
