Skateboards



I have been taking Big Brother to the skatepark since last Summer. He has learned so quickly, the last time we went there was a kiddo standing at the edge of the ramp trying to find the courage to go down. It's steep and kinda scary. This little boy was 10 years old, (Big Brother asked.) Big Brother wanted to help this kiddo, he encouraged him so much.

Out of all the children in the skatepark almost NONE wore helmets.

K.C. has also been going to the skatepark since last year, just watching his brother. Well today was different! I always bring 2 skateboards just in case Big Brothers busts one. K.C. took one out of my hands and tried to make it up a mini ramp. We helped him up and he sat on the skateboard and went down on his butt! He loved it totally! Now, I have to get this little boy a helmet! Looks like we are going to have two skater boys in the family!

(The t shirt that K.C. is wearing is College Boys. I don't let him wear shirts like that usually. What happened was as I was getting him dressed the shrit was inside out, I went to get another and he had a major fit, so I let him wear it, gotta pick your battles I guess :)

The shirt says, "stop bitching and start a revolution." The kids at the skatepark liked the shirt in fact, 4 kids came up to K.C. and said, "hey little dude I like your shirt."

The first video is Big Brother skating. The second is my little K.C. doing his own version of skating! Go K.C.!

OMG! Tina, you must have been bawling with joy! I know **I** am! That is SOOOO huge. Even in the still photo, I see such a big change in a short time. KC is looking at the camera, he *wants* to do what his brother is doing, he's fearless, the sun doesn't seem to be bothering him...SO MANY WONDEFUL THINGS HERE! (Sorry to shout, I got soooo excited.)

Happy Spring, my dear; I think your long dark winter is beginning to end. XOXOXOXOXO

OMG how cool that K.C. is trying to skate! And I love knowing that the other skaters said that about his shirt! Yes, you just need to pick your battles- and this time letting him wear that shirt ended up gaining him some respect :-)

My younger brothers were skaters (they're both in their 30s now) so I have always had a soft spot in my heart for skateboarders. It takes so much skill and is done with others but is still an individual sport- probably good for autistic kids for that reason.

This is wonderful! I think the shirt may have been a good thing as well. It was an ice breaker. He looks like he is having a blast!
