Skater Boys

Jaron getting ready to show me his stuff! Landon when he saw me show upJaron working on his ramp turnLandon prepping to go down the pyramid

Today was the first day of skateboard camp for the boys.It starts at 9am and ends at 12:30, and will run through Friday. Jaron loved every minute of it, but Landon is still skeptical and feels like he didn’t get to do enough…even though he’s still nervous about going down the pyramid! (Bottom right photo.)

Landon already knows how to turn, and tic tac so he’s just got to work on his confidence going down the ramps. Jaron said they were teaching them kick flips and ollie’s as well as letting them go up and down the ramps.

I’m learning some skater language as we go along here, so let me know if I lose you! ;)

I cannot see the pix as I'm at Karmanos Cancer Ctr. Look forward to seeing them when I get home or tomorrow. Noah skateboards all the time. I've never heard of tic tac but ollies, kick flips, 3 sets,4sets, etc. LOL Looking forward to the Lo's!

Awesome photos and cant wait to see how the los turns out! I like how you are learning the lingo! My oldest ds is trying to keep us in the loop. He says we are old fashion!...hahaha I remember telling my parents that.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
