Did I mention that my son is growing up too fast? Oh, OK. Just checking.
This was taken just a few weeks ago at a nearby skate park (which, if I was a kid, I would think was the coolest thing ever). Zan wanted to show me how proficient he’d gotten with his scooter … and I was fairly stunned to see the kinds of maneuvers he was able to pull off. No, he wasn’t doing any tricks, but just the fact that he was zipping around and taking such sharp turns was impressive.
If there’s a downside, it’s that he’s so enamored with his scooter that he is woefully behind on learning how to ride a bike sans training wheels. Looks like I have me a new summer project. That should be interesting.
Let’s hope we can avoid the “I caused my son to eat blacktop” blog entry.
