Aiden has really been on a roll with the green face at school, so as a reward, we bought him a skateboard. Not really feeling too sure about this, Steven assured me that he had a skateboard at Aiden’s age….then he promptly pointed out the scar on his forehead that he got from a skateboard accident. He seemed almost proud of it…I am not feeling any better about this. He did take some time to teach Aiden all the rules and some tips on how to fall. I just pretended to understand that there was a need to teach him HOW to fall. I thought NOT falling was the whole point. See how much I know!
|Excuse me...but I think you are a little too big for that mister!|
|He's just a little upset that he didn't get a skateboard!|
|Mmmm Hmmm....already trying to be a hotshot!|
|I think this is the "learning how to fall" lesson in action!|
|He's got it now|
|Oh yes! Big smiles until he comes in bleeding from his head injury!|
Last spring, Susanna created (ok…with just a little help) the most adorable little tribute to her baby brother. She entered it into her school media festival competition. It won at the school level and advanced to the county level, then to the state level, and we were elated to recently find out that it just won in her division at the international competition. It is truly jus the sweetest little project! I wanted to share it with you all! I am sure it will be something that we watch again and again as they grow up!
